Just wondering the best spot to stick the front vented loop. Anyone who has gone this route have some suggestions? I'm going with check valves in the rear but need to get a loop for the ski locker. Thanks!

Most route it along the inside wall under dash where it will be out of sight to everyone but the driver. So basically if you were sitting in the drivers seat it would be on the outside of your left leg

Makes sense. So punching a new hole up, correct?

why not put the loop in the engine compartment over the vdrive by the ski pylon. No holes.

I think you want the loop as close to the bag as possible. I was thinking behind the observer seat and expanding the battery cable hole???

I wouldnt think that proximity to the bag would make a difference so long as the loop is as high as possible.

I'm not sure why it matters either, but jasonwm was pretty clear that I needed it up front to work properly.

I have mine up there. I had to extend the hose so that it will work. Removed both floor boards to run new hose. Works great.

Drivers side or in the back by the pylon?

driver side. I ran the hose up through the existing hole on the foot rest. I then went through the same hole to the center locker. I think I have those pictures on my profile

I did some digging around and also asked a physical engineer I work with about vacuum breaks and it does not matter where it is located so long as its higher than either end or any water source. Hope this. Saves a little work and the dreaded extra hole.;)
