Default Ignition key relocation bracket!

wanted to give you guys a heads up on this if you do decide to do the relocation..

The bracket I purchased required the ignition switch to be located in such a way that the vent or hole where the wire harness goes into the housing is pointing straight up. I got drunk one night (imagine that) left my KP outside and it rained a lot. the water followed the wire harness straight down and into the switch with no problem. it completed a circuit which turned on my netural lamp and parasiticly drained my battery. I removed the bracket re-drilled the location of the hole and turned the ignition switch over so that would not happen again...I disassembled the switch it was full of water cleaned it and all is good..
