Semi Horn Mounting

I was curious as to where I should/could be able to mount these Hadley semi horns.

Hadley Bully Series Horn Dual Horn Lanyard Activated

I was thinking about mounting them underneath the truck where the running boards bolt onto the frame.

TheDieselStop.Com - www.thedieselstop.com

But my mom raised up an excellent question. What happens if it rains and I get water in them? Will this happen if I mount them there? Will it even matter if I get water in them? Any help will be appreciated.

There are a TON of pictures here with Horn mounting. Do a Search, in this forum, under Train Horn, I'm sure you'd find some

Water isn't a big issue, you just need to pitch them slightly down so they drain. Under the bed, you would want to block sand & dirt from being thrown into them from the ft tire. I put my airtank about a foot in front of them (under the pass door) as a "blocker".

Thanks for the help. I'll have to wait until everything comes in to see all of my mounting options, and how I'll do it.

I have 4 air horns mounted together on the drivers side between body and frame pointing formard ,slight down lean for drainage and the actual train horns on the passenger side, mounted same way. Works great with plenty of room and you really can't see them doing a walk around. You have to lean down and really look for them.
