As for the Georgetown, I have no knowledge on their housing set up.
The batteries are slung from the frame in an open tray. Below the steps (internal) they are pretty well shielded from tire and road spray. The tray itself is about 18" above the tarmac. If driving in water that deep you must have missed a turn!
