I think Myth Busters did an episode on something similar. I wouldn't worry to much about it.

i had one set up on a trailer, it did great until i tried wet leaves, they stuck and clogged up the pipe

I can see where the wet leaves would be a clogging problem. I think DRM Ventures is concerned about a fire.

It certainly would be a problem if the leaves began smoldering in the middle of the pile in the trailer box. Has anyone ever had a fire in the trailer box ?
