YHi all we have had our Corinium for just under a month now and have had a concern about how far the exhaust sticks out ?? Before I cut it back or remove the chrome extension is there a reason why it has to stick out so far ???  
Any ideas

I would have thought to clear exhaust gases from the bodywork as is the case on my Nuevo

Mine protrudes a little ( ooo .. errr ) but It’s not been a issue in 3yrs. Maybe the tail pipe could be undone and slid in a little ?

Do be carful what you do, it might have some design quirk that creates back pressure in the exhaust....but equally it might just be out there to clear the fumes...
Mines the same but it hasn’t caught anything as yet!

I have removed mine (2019 Nuevo) as it was in my opinion too close to the ground & in danger of damaging the whole exhaust if it caught something.

Mine on a Nuevo always used to scrape curbs, especially when travelling abroad. I lost it a couple of years ago and apart from a slightly sooty streak at the bottom of the gas locker I think it's better without.

Was wondering the same myself. It does stick out quite a bit. So best to leave as is (until it gets removed by accident!)? Really tempted to trim it back a bit but see that it might be good for keeping stuff away from the bodywork...

Hi our Broadway  eb was the same. When I drove up my drive from the road it  scraped  the drive.told the dealership and they removed  the chrome end. That  was a year ago everything  is fine without it.

Its a lot easier and cheaper to repair the exhaust then the body if you catch a kerb or ramp with the exhaust. I though I was being clever re-positing the exhaust on my Inca until I caught a kerb coming out of a rally at a school in Leyburn and smashed the front corner out of my underfloor locker.

I was told , by the first owner, That I would need to loosen off the pinch bolts and slide it in - if and when I used the Tunnel to France. Only had our Duo since June, but have been away in it 4 times since lock down has lifted and not had any problems with the chrome extension grounding or catching on anything.

I was informed that it was to protect the bodywork from discolouring.

I have a new Broadway FB, the tip of the chrome 'extension' is about 2-4 inches of the floor, it constantly scrapes when I drive over  speed table, every time I get on and off a ferry.. I'm now at the point where I'm going to have the chrome extension taken off, this extends the exhaust by about 6 inches beyond the end of the original exhaust.

Well ...... I spoke too soon rolleyes caught the tail pipe on the Bell which is situated at ground level on the corner of the old market hall in the middle of Llanidloes ( if anyone knows it ). Tail pipe bent quite severely close to the silencer box so a replacement will be required.
I’ll move the chrome tip in a fair bit when replaced me thinks undecided

The leisure battery is housed under the settee just above the exhaust position and there are vents in the floor, so the end of the exhaust needs to be proud of the bodywork so that exhaust gases do not get into the habitation area. I Never had an issue with it sticking out.
If your chrome trim extension is too close to the ground( as mine was) slacken the clamp on the exhaust pipe where it meets the silencer, and rotate the whole exhaust and chrome extension a few degrees clockwise, then re-tighten the clamp. There is a bend in the tail pipe, so this will lift the chrome extension away from the ground,
