Generator tail pipe hanger

Was wondering if anyone else has run into this.

I have a 2015 24R which is only 2 months old with only 1200 miles and approximately 1 hour of generator run time. The hanger for the tail pipe has failed completely. The hanger mount is a strap attached to the rv body with 2 screws, the hanger is a reinforced rubber strap attached to a metal holder which the tailpipe sits in. The reinforced rubber strap is what failed. The tailpipe has not come in contact with anything to cause the rubber strap to break.

This is a warranty issue, but do you want to wait on the dealer to "get you in"?

Yes it certainly is a warranty issue. However, I fashioned a replacement hanger very similar to the one you posted while I wait for my dealer to send me the FR replacement part to have as a backup.

Very Macgyverish of you.....
Given the lack of service you got out of the factory one I would not even bother to seek a replacement, but that is your call.
