alternater troubles

I have a ? My alternater on my91 Cherokee has gone bad on me twice to weekends in a row . It happens when I get in some water any ideas on how to fix maybe make something so the water don't rush in there . I don't know its just starting to get on my nerves I haven't been able to go wheeling with out it giving me troubles. Any ideas would be appreciated . Thanks

I've never had a problem with an alternator going out from water... I regularly blast mine with a power washer, and done plenty of water crossing with it... 9yrs old and it works just fine. Perhaps there is another issue...?
