protecting red circuit breakers on front of 264BH

My new 2021 Jayco, has the red circuit breakers (or whatever they are) on the front (see picture). When i went to pick it up , one of the red covers was missing and the terminals were starting to corrode. At my request, the dealer sprayed the terminal with a anti- corrosion spray and replaced a red cover.

I'm concerned, because these breakers or terminals or whatever, are in prime spot to get wet and salty (we have a lot of salt on the roads over the winter), and subject to rust and corrosion (as one already did pre-purchase)

Are these vulnerable? If so, I'd like to install a cover or something to protect these. Any ideas?

I'll post my eventual solution and photos.

Thanks

Those are circuit breakers, and can be had on Amazon. Just check the amperage on them, to get the right ones.

You could mount that whole assembly in something like this:

Several sizes listed. The metal junction box to its left isn't weatherproof either, and probably has some connections in it with wire nuts. That can be remedied with one of these boxes:

I'm installing one of those, if it ever warms up and stops raining here.

I asked this same thing at the dealer. We live on the coast! Thanks for the idea(s).
