I found you can buy a lawn mower cover that works pretty well. You can find them at big department stores like walmart and target, as well as auto stores.

The nice thing about these vinyl covers is that they are cheap, and easy to install. They will not stop all spray, but most of it.

I do not have a segvator, so I cannot offer much on that topic.

Two potential thoughts that come to mind are:

1. You can drill a hole in the bottom of the charger cover, so the cord can go thru and the door shut. I do not know the clearance for a cord in the plug while the door is shut, so this may not work.

2. You can get a short cord of specific design that you can install in the outlet in the inverter assembly, and have it hang out in some manner. If there are tight tolerances for space, you can get those flat or angled cords designed for behind furniture.

One last thought that came to mind is that you can place an upside down zip lock bag over the charger head before departing....

Good luck,
