Clogged Air Intake

First I apologized ahead of time. I really suck at searching this forum. Didn't find anything but I'm sure it's there.
I was cleaning Tobias today and for craps and giggles I pulled the 12V battery cover off just to snoop around. Upon inspection of the air intake the grates were completely covered in leaves. I pulled most out and shop vac'd the rest.
Has any one else had this issue?
We have had the bad sour odor and I have filters and cleaner on the way.

Regards,
Brad
