In this downpour we have had the last two days (over 5 inches since friday night)I have drove mine from Tyler to Terrell twice and around both towns and I don't even have the hydro shield on my filter right now. You have nothing to fear. Our gen has a splash guard under the engine connected to the front bumper and the air filter resides against the inside of the bumper. you will notice all of those people who fear or have experienced hydrolock either 1 have an older gen without the splash guard or 2 were in water so deep that the filter completely submerged... Which if your in that situation then you have much more to worry about then hydrolock lol.

EDIT: When I wrote this post I thought the OP had a second gen. Im not sure if you guys with 06-07 have the same protection we have
