Water and electricity do not mix. Any ideas on how to prevent this from happening.

Class "C's" have a bad habit with leaking in the fwd/bunk- entertainment area, if you suspect more than the gutters with open doors in the rain:

If you don't find the source you can destroy the cabover in a couple of years, it happened to me. I learned since then a easy way to find the leak is to connect a axial blower to plastic ducting sealed to a roof vent. Seal up the coach and start the fan, takes only a few minutes to build up a air pressure just a few inches of water column. Using a water soap solution (windex) spray all seams, running lights, window frames etc. you'll find the source. The windex will indicate as a small bubble foam.

Same problem with mine. Considered a piece of plastic over the switches but we just try to squeeze out the door so the water runs down the outside of the door. Interested to see if anyone has a better idea.

RHamilton - Just curious. Is your 27' Forester a 2451S? Don't see many of them.
