This is coupled to the truck and I can get the tailgate completely down with about 5 1/2" of clarance between the gate and the front of the trailer.

Your issue is what I saw guys posting about when I made the decision to install the Banks exhaust. Mine doesnít have the low-slung storage, but it was pretty hot along the molding.

As you can see that tailpipe is pointed right at the front corner of it too.

Buy a Ford 6.7, exhaust turns out, plus more powerful.

I pulled a 2010 Jayco Designer with a 2008 GMC 2500 Duramax for years without any problems with exhaust heat on the front of the Designer. Now I pull a 2016 Jayco Pinnacle with a 2018 GMC 3500 SWD Duramax and still have not had any problems with exhaust heat. I have left the truck idling for 15-20 minutes connected to the Pinnacle and never notice any heat buildup on the front panel as I pack up the 5th wheel.

Dont get me wrong, Ford makes a pretty nice truck, but me and Ford vehicles dont exactly get along.

I drive a F450 for work and it's the company's truck, so I have to drive that. It's a nice truck, rides nice for a 450, steers very well and sharp, but I can already see down the road some mechanicall issues coming with it.

Hi sorry off topic. I noticed your pulling a pinnacle with a gmc srw 3500. We are looking at a 2020 3500 srw duramax. May I ask if you have any problem pulling with the srw? Forum always says go dually. It’s going to be my main driver and I don’t want to get a dually. Any regrets on the srw? Looking at the pinnacle ssws down the road. Tia Chris

Looks like you have a sb truck. Mine is a long bed with more room between the two. Iíve never experienced the dilemma you have. And it has regenerated numerous times while towing. Hope you are able to come up with something to divert your exhaust before itís too late.

Consider taking your truck to a good exhaust shop that can turn your exhaust 90 degrees from your truck. That should make enough difference to save the front of your 5R.

Actually, mine is a long bed. Dually's only come in long bed.
I've got an idea I'm gonna work on this weekend.

aplunkett posted that he installed a Banks Cool Cuff on his L5P. I've thought about calling Banks and see if they have one for an LML like mine.
I've also thought of your idea of taking it to an exhaust shop and have them "tweak" it just a little bit to get it pointed away from the front of the 5er.

Sorry Lake. I missed the pic of your dually. I saw the pic with the distance between the exhaust and your coach. I'll be hooking up this Friday so I'll check my distance again because it just looks like you have less distance than I do. Mine is not a NP though.

I’d get a short piece of bent exhaust pipe and then try pointing it down or out the side. Have you taken temperature readings using an IR thermometer? I’d get readings at the exhaust outlet and on the camper itself.

DuraMax Exhaust

Get a roll of Reflectix from Home Depot. Using 3M no-residue duct tape, fix the Reflectix to the area of the trailer experiencing the problem. It will easily come off, without sticky residue, within 6 months.

Sounds good. Post back with your measurements.
My uncle just bought a 2019 Dmax standard bed and pulls a Cedar Creek. His trailer doesnt go as low as my NP but he has hydraulic landing gear that's right in line with his tailpipe also. I'm gonna check with him and see what his is like.

I've been thinking something along that line.
I'll check out that Reflectix.
Thanks!

I got an IR gun and didnt even think of using it. I will be on the next run though.
