thanks - i think that right now the plan is to leave york (just north of baltimore) at around 8 tomorrow night. we chose to drive at night to avoid traffic, especially when towing a 90 it makes things a lot easier to work with. mapquest says about 10 hrs. that should put us in maine and sleeping sometime around 7-ish friday morning. a little power nap and we will be ready to see what the romp is all about by 1 in the afternoon. i only hope that the girl that writes for rovers north will be making an appearance this weekend!

What is the intake extension on the passenger side wing for? I know that's where the heater box is. Does it force more air through?

How apropos. We got 6 inches last night, and yesterday morning I watched a bit of snow getting sucked in.

there was a fair amount of ice to break through on narrow gauge though.

Andrew, i went to a boat yard and purchased the scoop there. I then cut a piece of ali to fit in the wing top opening. It cuts down on the snow blocking the air intake and the amount of rain when its standing still.

Mike thanks for posting the pic that was a big file.

Awesome. Does it also force more air through while driving, thereby reducing the need for having the fan all the way up?

I looked down in there this morning after brushing 3-4 inches of snow off, and it was damn near full of snow.

I dont really notice any differnce with the force of air but it slows down the snow infiltation.
attached a better Pic
