2012 canyon star

My older sister and brother in law have a new 2012 caynon star on a Ford chassis
They stopped by for a day or tow and i had a chance to look it over...after a 4 day factory trip for warranty repairs,
pretty nice overall and suits their need for the toys in the back.
One thing i noticed that gave me pause, was the 12vdc wiring and fuse block in the bathroom cabinet, it is right beside the main 120 volt COVERED panel.
but the 12 volt panel is OPEN, no covers or box or anything to protect you from it or an time in the cabinet from striking the hot side of the 12volt feeds
Is this normal or should i stress to them to get it covered up
I can see my sis putting bathroom items in this cabinet and then maybe something getting shorted out

thanks

This is pretty standard. Nothing I worry about, but I don't place items in that cabinet, except I carry some extra 12volt fuses.

I have the same setup in bedroom cabinet do not store anything but a book for coach that covers the 12V panel and not enough room for anything else.
Nothing should be stored that would short out fusing and the 12V would not hurt most people.
