Looking at the system I measured the exhaust pipe and found it to be inch and a quarter. Went to HD and got ten ft. of inch and a quarter steel conduit and three unions and a 90 degree bend. About $25. Used a piece of corner brace mounted on the CB antenna and a strap to the conduit. Hooked it up and the exhaust goes up above the coach with most of the noise. Better than $135 CW wants for their PVC system. Cut the 10 ft. piece in half for easy storage. We bought a inch and a quarter PVC ninety and tried it first. It melted.
Be careful with that "solution". I am not an expert, but i know that most engines require a certain amount of back pressure, or in this case lack thereof. The exhaust extensions i have seen actually do not connect directly to the pipe but have a small gap to allows some of the pressure to release. All I am saying is that the extension of the exhaust pipe may make the engine not run to spec.
I agree with you. So I cut the pipe off and attached a three inch by eight foot piece of plastic pipe. The inch and a half runs into the three inch about a foot. The exhaust pulls cold air in at the bottom and cools the PVC. I saw the ones at CW and that was the way they are. Thanks for the constructive criticism.
