I have an EB8 and a EB4 just to have enough low wattage outlets. All my stuff is under the tank with the sump. Since I'm the only one messing with that area, if I wet it, it's my own fault. So Mola, you have some wires going from stand across the gap to the lower cab? I'd put some protection on those. Even something like 'wire mold' would provide good protection. Loose wires sets off some primeval desire in the young males brain to mess with it! If you have room you could put the EB8 under the tank and partition off the area or make a box out of some plastic container. You could make it a design project for the students! There's lots of examples on RC or R2R.
