Air Cleaner full of stuff

Hello all. I have a 2002 CC Intrigue 36'. Does anyone else have problems with the location of the intake for the air cleaner picking up vast amounts of dust, dirt, leaves, pine needles etc. Mine is located in the right rear compartment.
If so have you found a way to reduce that accumulation of stuff and extend the time between air filter changes?
Thanks

pumper,
Mine isn't like yours so I can't help much but I agree that it could be higher. My Inspire has the intake just above and behind the radiator on the drivers side but the access to the filter is very awkward.
I see many of the newer SOB's have the actual intake near the roof.

Yep, higher seems to be better. Our is on the drivers side and over 6' up the side with a screen across it which keeps the birds out and maybe a few large bugs.

On our 04 Allure 40', it is on the passenger side, at the very tail of the coach. You have to drop and move part of the brackets of the Country Coach advertisement! (The solid rock protection.) to access the clearner.

Just changed ours for the first time that we have had the coach, and it looked in pretty good shape. Air intake is up a bit, so suspect that helps.

Any chance yours was not sealed in tight, and it allowed a bit more 'stuff' in?

Best,
Smitty

Thanks for the replies. I realize that having the intake higher would be a good thing. I like the furnace filter idea. Any other suggestions that do not involve re engineering the whole intake system?
