I would not make any modifications until you are confident that the unit will perform in a vertical position.
If the manufacturer ok's a modification to the dealer be sure it is in writing to cover liability and warranty. Frank
That's why I sealed the vents and exhaust port to stop any further damage. I plan to have a discussion with my dealer. They have caused nothing but problems. It seems this is one of those "off the lot, out of mind" dealers. That's going to change.
