Under Fuse Box?

Hey all,

Could one of you look under the Drivers Side, Front box (Fuse Box) and see what the bottom of the box is covered with. ours is covered with a fabric and gets wet when driving in the rain. Seams to me that it should be covered with a sealed metal cover to keep the water out.

Thanks

Skip,
mine is covered with what I think is some type of fiber board that has a hard white coating. Not sure exactly what it is though.

3putt,
Does not look anything like that. As I said, it is some sort of wood or fiber board that is covered in a shiny, white coating. If you look in your water cabinet where all of the shut offs are and where you hook up your fresh water and sewer hose, it looks like that material that the inside of that cabinet is made of. Can't go out and take a picture right now because I just got home from having cataract surgery and it is also pouring rain.

Seems like it's a Melamine product. I'm not to crazy about it and surprised it's even used.

Thanks Tom. Think I'm going to put some sheet metal on it and seal it making it water tight. Emailed Randy to check if it's suppose to be water tight.

Thanks again

Thanks Tom, the inside of the fuse box cabinet is fine, the white solid board. My concern is the under side of the cabinet just has fabric and not water tight and the fabric gets wet from water when driving in the rain.

Skip,
Sorry, I misunderstood your problem. I thought that it was the bottom of the inside of the cabinet that was the issue. Not sure what the underside of my cabinet looks like. Maybe some one here can take a look at theirs and see how it is sealed on the bottom.
