More fun with the motorhome - exhaust separated at the turbo

It keeps finding new ways to thwart me. Planned to leave tomorrow first thing for the coast. Noticed it was a little loud when I moved it from storage up to the house, but the smoke from the cold start came out the tail pipe, so I didn't expect this.

Not really the motorhome's fault - when I got the clamp off I could see the idiot that put the new cross over pipe on didn't get the clamp in place before tightening it. Anyway, a fun afternoon getting the part and then lying in a puddle of icy water with crap falling on my face.

I think I'll relax and leave Sunday. No need to hurry.

It's always something. At least it is an easy, and not too expensive, fix.

What is the crossover pipe you mentioned that needed to be replaced? Coolant pipe?

It is the exhaust pipe that crosses under the engine from the turbo outlet on the driver's side to the muffler on the passenger's side.

The factory bent tube rusted out about 5 years ago and my local diesel shop put in a couple of elbows and some flexible pipe. Later they put a new muffler on for me.

So far the exhaust tip fell off the muffler and last year on the climb up Mt Shasta in CA and the exhaust melted the air line from the governor to the compressor. This year it is the other side's turn to fall apart.

Appreciate the though, but I have to say I'm pretty lucky. Even with it's hickups the coach has never caused me to miss a deadline.

Now my friends in Paradise California are having a tough run of luck. When they evacuated, their house was still standing but their neighbours were on fire.
