water in the fuse box under the dash?

hi I've got an 06 6.0 all specs below, and i was just getting into my fuse box under the dash the other day cause i needed the fuse puller for something else. when i pulled the fuse box cover off i noticed that there was a significant amount of water inside the cover. it has been raining quite a bit over here but i don't have any visible leaks anywhere. i cant figure out how the water would get all the way under there and pool in the lid of the fuse box. the fuse box itself looks fine but i did have a glitch the other day when my climate control display didn't light up/operate for a little bit then i turned on the headlights and it came on and then it was fine. any ideas? i searched the forum and found nothing on this matter. thanks for the help.

Leaky seal around the windshield, many trucks have had this problem. The water leaking on the fuse box can cause all kinds of electrical problems too.

Oh really? I guess that makes sense. Is there any way to prove that?

it is a common issue and if your not set on trying to get them to replace the fuse box
the windsheild can be resealed at home without removing it

but the proper way is rip it out and re seal it
