Not really, just a lot of experience of dealing with all sorts of odd events over an interesting career.

The one thing I learnt was that, at some stage, for some people, EVERYTHING will conspire to work AGAINST them.

If I can do as much as I can to make sure it doesnt happen to me then I consider the effort to have been worthwhile.

As in this instance, 10 minutes with a hacksaw will prevent my scenario ever happening. thats a worthwhile investment of time in my book !!

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

I was only kidding I have similar thoughts when watching people do stuff, it makes me laugh how kak handed some people are who are otherwise very bright.


Cause and effect.

hacksaw ? most people will use a disc cutter nowadays but a word of warning if you do, shield the MH from any sparks as these red hot tiny bits of metal will embed into the paintwork/fibreglass and will eventually show as little rust spots. ( bad experience working beside my boat once)

Afternoon folks,

If you were to pull up close to a kerb or other obstruction and wreck the exhaust it will cost you more than a hacksaw blade.

Ha Ha, I think you're all missing something, it's a troll post, he didn't need our advice, & he doesn't need a hacksaw (horrible name for a tool) neither does he need a disc cutter.

He already has all he needs.

He has































The force, that or a Light Sabre will do the trick in a flash.




These are not the helpers you are looking for.[img]<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/DydGpOCuKt4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>[/img]

I quite agree. I'll get the pipe cut back but also have a bend put in to divert it away from the gas outlet as Nomad said. Another problem solved.

Tut tut, no points for injecting some humour into a 4 page thread then.

You just can't please some folk

What, you think motorhome manufacturers actually design things??? In my experience things just get made up as they go along.....
don't think you're that far wrong - even the Germans

on my Hymer Van, the exhaust pipe finished just under the skirting in front of the electric step. the problem was that there was no angle to the pipe so any exhaust heat and debris got blown onto the skirting and in time discoloured it and no amount of cleaning would restore it to it's original look.

I put a curved trim cover on that faced downwards to prevent any further damage.

and the Lord said unto John "come forth and receive eternal life". but John came fifth and won a toaster........
