2016 Vegas 25.2 Mud Flap on Tail pipe

Hello everyone, I want to share a couple of photos with you. I have the 25.2 Vegas. We went from East Coast to West coast and back to East Coast. No problems. We took a trip up to Bristol TN from East coast in NC and back and this is what I noticed when I started to wash it. Now I did add the rock deflector before the Bristol trip to the very rear to keep debris from hitting our toad. The mud flap laid on the exhaust pipe and melted. Real happy it did not create a disaster.

A frequent problem with early Axis/Vegas units. A few people simply cut off the bottom of the mudflap so it couldn't reach. I think others put something there to prevent it from moving back towards the exhaust pipe.

My solution was some truck mudflap weights:

I've noticed that occasionally the weight does make contact with the exhaust pipe, but it doesn't melt.

Thank you Jamie Geek, I will just finish trimming it up.

My 2017 Axis 24.1 is also melted. Must still be an issue.
