How will you keep rain water from blowing into the a/c air intakes, especially while driving? Did you make louvers or covers?

We have never had an issue, of course with the vents on the bottom and terminal velocity of 55 mph, there isn't a lot of force to push rain up the windshield

I will be redoing the front AC, it isnt effecicnt enough, there is too much hot air in the hidden panel and it supper heats the ac and just doesn't cool very good

I will be keeping the intakes where the are and I will stick the rear of the ac to front panel like Lorna did in her build "what color to paint rims" this will get ride of hot air better

I'm down to my final stages of getting the interior finished to live in, but I've kind of run out of design ideas. Insulating the front of it and figuring out interior walls in the front and back corners have me flustered. I've got a buddy who's much more experienced in carpentry to help me do some stuff in Knoxville (after my next paycheck lol)
Cool, it all about having a good time, this spring I ned to get back on the bus and do some work for a fall trip.

The mini farm thing took most of last year to get going

SO your about 2 hours from us, we get down to knoxville area a couple times a year (pigeon forge/Gatlinburg)
