As for your question: We have had occasions where water would get past the seals like mowdoc said. The position of those first bays would invite leakage while driving in rain....heavy or not. Perhaps adding mudflaps behind the steering axles would help redirect the spray.
As a preventive measure, I have treated the seals with seal treatment (same as used on seal rubbers on your slides) to try to keep them flexible.
See ya on the Precept Owners Forum.
