Oasis exhaust pipe

Is there any way to adjust the distance which the front end drops when the auto level is activated? I have noticed that the oasis exhaust directly under the front axle sits on the ground when coach dumps all air. I was wondering if anyone else out there has noticed this on their 2015 DS.

Mine does not touch the ground. But I have scraped it once on an entrance to a private road that was just a little too steep coming off the main road. I wonder why they could not have routed that exhaust pipe better. When I get under there to look, it seems a few extra turns and bends and a few more feet of pipe would have made it possible. But, maybe they could not find a reasonable engineering solution. And I'm sure we all know the 2016s went back to exhausting towards the rear by the Oasis unit.

Perhaps there is an adjustment to bring it up a little?

I shortened the pipe between the Oasis unit and exhaust pipe, which tucked the exhaust up tighter to the bottom of the coach. I called Oasis and they said it wasn't a heat issue. The exhaust pipe between the unit and pipe is just black gas pipe available at Home Depot. Mine also had a gangly long pipe that vented out between my two passenger slides. I flipped the exhaust around, shortening it by about 6' and routed it out the driver's side.

This is what the finished product looks like. You can see how tight I tucked the unit up under the coach and then shortened the tail pipe, bringing it out the driver's side.
