    Default Air intake replacement

    Question for those who have gone the camper conversion route with your LMTV and removed the stock induction: what filtration set up did you use?

    Looking for effective solutions, or conversely, any "don't do this way" direction.

    Thanks in advance,
    Chris

    Have seen an M939? filter unit used. They mounted it lower just under bed height if recall right in similar in heigt to OEM location to the 939 (939 filter can is under drivers arse, under the cab edge). Saw where someone did this with the OEM one.. they must have been very confident it would not let water in... granted even if it did the water would have a looong way to go UP to get to the engine.

    others with deeper pockets have used Donaldson filter setups. You can contact Donaldson with your engine specs. and they will make recommendations.

    Many states have banned on road use of MV's. Even Canada has made driving them difficult. In a flash all of your work money and work is wasted. Watch your State Legislator closely! Band together to make sure this does not happen. This can be done by setting up an automatic send of all State Bill proposals. Once it's law, it's hard to get it changed.

    Never mind the dust when driving... Yeah, I saw that but couldn't believe that was considered a valid solution.

    I saw how that one was built. They had lots of “new” ways to build campers. I didn’t like any of them. I think they could have missed the KISS principle.

    The older that I get the more a realize "there was a reason the engineer did it that way". Tread lightly if you feel you have a better way.

    I called Donaldson and they recommended different things depending on who you talk to.

    First time, they recommend the powercore 12 to 14 size filters.

    The second time I called, I said I wanted minimal maintenance, reliability, etc....they recommended a powercore 18 size, but then I said I might mount it high on the truck...... then they changed course and came up with a ridiculous filter system that was bigger than the stock one. They followed by saying they would not change anything from stock.

    If you put it there, you will need to consider the hassle of opening the cab. Not that it could not be done. The space between the cab and the spare and the intake is poorly utilized. It was designed for quick dismantle in the field, not space conservation. RV people have tried to redo this area. I think it is somewhat of a waste of time. For example, the spare tire is going to take about the same area, whether it is left where it is, or stuck on the back of the RV. If you are trying to regain the space by moving thing around, consider dovetailing things like a small gen, a 12 volt compressor for back up, into that area. Put things on slides, whenever possible. Maybe put the intake on stilts or something and utilize the space below it better.
