Question peugeot boxer 1995 - wet battery when raining

Hi, I've fixed a few small issues on the old camper i bought in June but i cannot fathom how to stop water getting on the battery and tray. The battery is very close to the drivers side wing and i think that each downpour is shortening out the battery. I've put a new battery in to ensure it wasn't down to an old battery. Anyone else had similar issues- if so how resolved? Can't gamble withthis fault when out on me hols! Cheers

Ample application of grease /Vaseline to the Positive battery terminal should eliminate any shorting .

Plus get the battery top scrupulously clean. Pure rainwater won't conduct electricity. It's when it picks up the dirt that things go wrong.
