When I had solar panels installed, they removed an old electrical box, leaving a hole in the siding. For no apparent reason, they installed the new electrical panel over half of the hole they left. I'm not sure how to fix this.
It looks like I could cut a section of matching composite siding, screw that in and caulk around it with silicone on the exposed sides, but since half of the hole is behind the electrical panel, it looks like I'd also need to caulk the top and sides of the electrical panel to prevent water from dripping down into the opening. Is this the right approach for solving this problem?
Update: Here are some additional photos.
It doesn't appear that any wires go into the house from the back of the panel. If you look carefully, it looks like there's a gap in the siding that goes all the way to the soffit. I'm not sure what that's about. Would I need to caulk that as well?
