Reliability, function, safety in wet rainy weather

Got a question for you extremists: How well does this BBSHD product perform in wet weather i.e. Heavy rain? I'm talking about the electrical parts like buttons, throttle control, LCD, switches, connections etc. I understand that it has an IP42 rating on the motor. But will the switches short out and send you sailing under extreme wet weather conditions? I live in Florida and we get a lot of rain here. Anyone have any any experience with this? I'm mainly concerned about safety and reliability.
