Re: Not enough heat in cabin
My 2011 has been fine on cross prairie trips at minus 30. It was able to keep the cabin toasty and frost free for 6+ hours. I don't think 10 mintues is enough time to fully warm especially if it has been sitting at -30.
An old school trick is a piece of cardboard over the grill to limit the -30 degree air blasting into the rad. My old Toyota truck required the cardboard below -25.
I see that a lot up here. It seems some auto companies make either a big pad to cover the front or they make a grill that has next to no air flow vents on it so it really restricts the air flow. Havent seen anything like that for the RL tho...
