Or something else?

I appreciate the help.
I haven't tried it as mine only has a few hours on it and doesn't need an oil change just yet. I would remove the support bracket screws by the exhaust pipe end. Next just loosen the "U" bolt nuts just enough to twist the pipe a few inches out of the way.

No idea why they would make this change.

Sage, that sounds like a plan. I was tempted to do that while i was under there earlier today, but I don't like experimenting by taking things apart.

From what I can tell, the exhaust pipe has been placed so it is closest to the front. I would assume that the pipe could have be swiveled around to another spot if properly bent.

Did they change it so it doesn't exhaust directly below a slide?

Here is an idea. Under where you check/put in oil. There is a plug. You could use a step drill and make a hole opposite the plug and put a fitting with a check valve and short extension to out side pan and drain the oil.

How about one of those 12-volt oil changers that sucks out the oil from the fill hole. I have one I used to use with my sailboat's diesel inboard motor.

Here's a manual one that looks promising from Nothern Tool:

On my Dynamax Super C, they mounted the generator in such a way that it MUST be unbolted and shifted to gain access to the drain plug and filter. What should be a 10-minute job now takes an hour or more. Grrrrrrrrrr.
