I've heard that when they get a bunch of water or snow in them the heat and liquid dissolves a bunch of soot in the pipes and then the pipes $hit all over your bed and trailer, making a huge mess.

Kinda makes me want hinged stacks. That would be so cool

I think if you went to the lowest point of the stacks and drill a small hole in the bottom the water would drain.

Thats the most common thing amongst most guys with stacks that get alot of rain, all you have to do is just drill a really tiny hole in the bottom of your 90* that goes up into your bed

I dont cover mine, but it is parked under shelter. If I'm out somewhere and get cought in the rain....I dont worry about it. I have started putting rags held on with zip ties on the stacks after washing my truck. That way no soot gets on the truck. It dosent really make a mess in the rain....the rain washes it off.

I've been around 18-wheelers my whole life and we never done anything to protect against rain or snow. The only negative I can see is eventual rust on the inside, but that will happen regardless.
