Onan Cummins service

2017 Newmar Ventana le 4002 with onan cummins 8000 generator. Problem is the access door to oil filter only will open about 6 inches as it hits the tail pipe running underneath. I had to remove the door to get to the filter. Is this normal? And why would the tail pipe run right under the access door?

I haven't checked our new Dutch Star, but our old coach (Monaco Camelot) was the same way. It was a PITA the first time, but just became part of the procedure when changing the fuel and oil filters. No biggie.

I had the same issue...I just loosened the exhaust pipe and pivoted it over a bit...enough to get it out of the way.

I moved the hanger about 2" back, so the pipe is permanently out of the way now.
