I spent about an hour looking thru all the pics I have collected, as well as here and Fred's looking for an answer...
Either they are different years, or the pics are too low quality to see..

Are the screens still in the back of the scoops?

Yes, If I remember rightly, there is metal mesh over the inside of each scoop..

Our doors look alike, are the scoops plastic (abs)?

Judging from the amount of heat damage to the insulation, I'd be real tempted to pull those scoops; who the heck needs them? A fan system perhaps if those gen sets run that hot.

To be honest Mike, even that same insulation that is in my spare wheel area is failing, so not sure how much of it is heat related.
After talking in detail to the Soundproofing guy, and thinking about getting it done,and done right, I think I am gonna mount a pair of 180mm Computer case fans, to the upper door louvers to suck air out when the Generator is running... So, like a 110V computer power supply powering them?

So, here is my door, as I posted over on SS's thread...


Here is how my genset looks... Oil leaks and all...


Underside is soaked...

I'm not sure if you want to suck or blow (geez, that sounds dirty). Brad's idea is a good one, although I'm not sure it's needed. I mean, how often does the gen set need to slide out? (p.s. , post some pics if you ever accidently leave that slide open when you leave the campground) ((I've done it on one of my others)).

Hey Keyair in looking closely at your pictures, it looks like there is a shroud missing from your generator. It looks like there are two little flanges to the right of the head that might be mounts for an air deflector to direct cooling air over the head. It might help the unit run a little cooler. Just thinking out loud.

Cheers, Dan

You are correct, but I took them off when looking for the oil leak.
