Skip I misunderstood as well. I went out to look at mine and was surprised to see water in it. It was always been dry. I had the Moho washed yesterday so maybe the guy with the pressure washer got a little carried away. I will look at the underside in the morning.

Hi Phil, If the inside of the fuse cabinet under the driver seat is wet, on mine there are two drain holes there, that maybe clogged. When that first happen to me (water in the compartment), it was not readily apparent that the drain holes existed, but after soaking up the moisture, I found them and cleaned them out. The door that covers that compartment does not seal that well. I also did add some weather stripping, which seemed to also solve my issue. Hope that is of some help... Craig

Thanks Craig. I'll have to look at that. I was very surprised to see water in there. I'll check the drain holes and seal the door.

I found that I had to adjust the latches to hold the door tighter. Mine were loose and needed to be slightly bent.

The underside of my cabinet is black and sealed all the way around. Doesn't feel like metal when I knock on it. We've had many inches of hard driving rain here in Texas and my cabinet is dry. Guess I'm lucky.

Mine is a black material that looks woven. It is a plastic woven that is getting very worn. Also the frame is extremely rusted. It looks like I have a project to keep me busy. I think a piece of aluminum would do it as you suggested Skip. Some rust oleum and it will be good as new. Click image for larger version

Undercoating would work. It not in bed shape but I can see where it could get bad if not treated. Undercoating would most likely be better.

Under Fuse Box?

Don't use aluminum. It will have a galvanic reaction with the steel framing. Anode vs cathode stuff. What about painting on that bedliner stuff they use in pick up trucks. The stuff is damn near bulletproof. Just a thought.
