Water in running boards
I wanted to share today that I noticed water seemed to be dripping out of my stock retractable running boards. I set the boards to the out position and they both proceeded to drip. Getting a little concerned about how much water was in them (rust), I decided to take the caps off. The caps remove with 2 screws each and it's simple to just pull the caps out.
Anyway, I found that the running boards are completely plastic, so no rust concerns there. I will leave them open overnight and put them back on tomorrow.
It appears there is a gap in one corner of the caps to allow them to dry out. Anyone considered using a little silicon on the rest of the cap to help seal them up?
