Our 90 has two. One may just be resonator?
Also, hole mentioned. I believe small hole is designed in, to let moisture out.

I developed a hole in the rear muffler and that has begun a whole new adventure trying to figure out the replacements for these two mufflers!

I think you are making this much more complicated than it needs to be. Just look at what almost all other motor homes use, just a short small exhaust that exits in front of the front wheel. Find a straight thru muffler that is the right length with correct size pipe and install it. The only thing that might be wrong is it could be too loud, however with the length of BB exhaust, that is unlikely. Just one guys opinion.

Probably am making a bigger deal of it , just want to make sure it's right. My 2 mufflers are located on the underneath behind the front wheel and run back to the stack up thru the roof.
Looking at stainless steel mufflers for diesels. Still need to cut them off cause they are rusted at the connections!

having 2 mufflers is crazy,i always thought so.
I know of a LXI with no muffler and its not loud coming out of the stack.
Cutting mufflers off is normal,a sawzall will do it in no time.

Powertech does not build mufflers,just sayin...
On Finns coach when we put the Powertech in it we bought tractor mufflers from Tractor supply,the first one was too loud,so we tried another,it was just fine.
But,Finn had an FC,no roof stack,so the first one may have worked fine on your coach.
I would try a straight pipe first,i bet it will be fine,heck,the pipe is 30 feet long...
