The BCC compartment from what I could tell is supposed to be pretty much water tight. What I found was the sealant that Damon used had fallen out in a one inch square opening on the underside towards the front passenger corner.
I used Silicone & flex spray to seal the whole. Plus put weather stripping where the door closes. What I really found was water getting in the compartment from that 1" hole. Once I sealed that, the compartment stays dry now.

I will get some pics & try to post them.

Here are a few pics of my BCC compartment. The entire compartment is sealed and you can see on the underside where the hole was. My control unit for the PG system is mounted in the BCC and the PG tech told me that just a little moisture would cause problems.
Hopefully these pics work.. Sorry, the two bottom pics are roated CCW 90 degrees. Not sure why.

Here is the pic of where the hole was. This pic is rotated CCW 90 as well. I'm laying on the ground under the unit just in front of the driver front tire.

Sure looks like fun. I'm trying to get the DW to go somewhere. It's a little hard with a new 7 week old puppy & a new garage being installed. The poor bus is just sitting.

We left on vacation with only grading done and came back two weeks later to a completed garage. I didn't think I would like that but it removed all of the worry.

We are having our pad next to the house extended about 15 feet and an awning/roof put up while we are at the festival...which is only about ten miles from the house. Wish we had room to build an out building like you did...but we are too close to the setback. When we retire to our lake lot in NC on Kerr Lake we will build something like you did...with enough room for my boat, truck and a carving shop...that is gonna cost some shekels...$50K I bet ;-(

We live on lake LBJ here & have an acre lot with 120 ft of water front. Boat hangs in lift as it's a constant level lake. We're in the process of adding a detached 1700sqft RV & toy garage on the bottom floor plus ~750sqft condo on second floor with an elevator. The RV portion is a 18x45.
Been fighting permits the whole time and should finally break ground next week.
I really want to get the toys and my truck out of the elements.

Fuse Panel

Just had a trip away with the grandkids and a number of little irritations beset us. Lost the overhead lights in the living room and in the bedroom. In the manual for a 2010 Astoria the fuses are on the 'House Panel' The fuses are A 1 thru 3
up to H 1 thru 3. I thought this panel was the one at the back of the bedroom below the closet doors but it's not. Does anyone know where this 'House Panel'
is?

Thanks

Isn't there a removal black plastic panel below the 110 breakers? You have to look close or you will miss it, at least that's the deal with '11 model.

There's a removable black plastic cover to the right of the 110v breakers that is all 12v but they are not numbered the same and I did a continuity test on each one and all where OK

There is another panel on front drivers side compartment but I think that one is all chassis stuff.
