Hasn't seemed to bother it yet, I stay away from deep water! What water I run into on the trails is present in the area where the alternator is, but I've never noticed any problems. Alternator shows signs of water hitting it, but no more that what would be under the hood of a car/truck! The area I mounted it is about 12-16 inches above the ground, and is pretty well protected. I have a alternator field switch that I can turn the alternator off if it does short out, this also keeps the battery from discharging if it sits for a long time.
