u don't want it below that hole it is pushed thru on the vent. keep in mind when u start cutting, that pipe moves as u go down the road.

Be careful how much you cut off, if any. I recently decided to install a cyclone type sewer vent device on the vent tubes on my Unit. In one case I had enough pipe extended to attach the device. In the case of the other vent, it was cut at an angle and I could not attach the device. They had cut the front flush with the top of the cover. I ended up trimming the outside cover so that I could expose enough vent pipe to connect to. I then had to caulk the entire base, as soon as I stabilized the vent pipe inside the cover.

Just to clarify you should cut 1/2" down on the existing black pipe. This will leave you with 1/2" gap below the rain cap, thats what you want. You should probably mark you line all the way around and use a sawzall or dremiel cutter to get a decent cut. A hanksaw may have problems with the seal fitting.

Do you mean not having enough room to use a hacksaw?

I'm sure I'll have to sand the burrs of the cut.

You want a little sitting above the pipe in case you want to add a rotating vent system later on. I think you need 1/2" for some of those models.

Yes, cause of the two cap retainers sticking up alongside the vent.

Going back and looking at my pics, I see what you mean. Dummy me I'd probably cut them off too!
