Mine had the same problem this weekend ...looks like a frozen Niagara Falls. Not happy with these type of issues. I love the sled but these things are starting to get to me.......Oh, ran oil in the gas this weekend and the sled sounded like it was gurgling and burping...........My dealer has been extremely helpful, but the list continues to grow
get a tube of black RTV and a 7/16" socket, pull the seat off, make sure the heat exchanger is sealed to the tunnel, then run a bead across the tunnel where the back of the seat would be, be sure to seal the wire grove also, snow dust hits the top of the heat exchanger, melts and the water runs down the tunnel and drips out from under the seat.
My heat exchanger wasn't totally sealed. (They missed a spot.) Before I rode one mile, I sealed off the hole. My friend's sled (SnoProG) has the seat icing problem really bad, probably due to a leak with someone at the factory not sealing the heat exchanger. While out riding through deep powder, it was noticably worse. The seat was so frozen from the "niagra falls" effect that it was froze on the sled and due to the cold conditions we couldn't remove the seat. (We'll wait for a thaw to remove the seat and find the poor seal and fix it with silicone.)
It doesn't take much time to fix this problem (under 5 minutes). . . as long as the seat can be removed.
