    The cables that run from the steering wheel to the engine are looped through the aft cabin area. During rain, the water runs off of the cables and soaks the king mattress. Has anyone else experienced this? What has been done to remedy this? Before I take the wheel housing apart I seek advice from others that have gone before me. Do I just caulk the base of the wheel housing or is there a better solution?
