Shorai LFX18A1-BS12 and Water Exposure?

I just installed a Shorai LFX18A1-BS12 ultra lightweight high performance battery in my 990 Adventure R and it's working fine, but I just learned that this battery is not waterproof and I do 2-3 week rides through tons of mud, dirt and sand including deep water crossings. I'm concerned that this battery is going to shit the bed on me in the middle of nowhere hundreds of miles from the nearest motorcycle shop. Is there any way to waterproof this thing by sealing it with silicone or has anyone else used this battery on their adventure and beat the snot out of it through many water crossings? I'm thinking of putting the OEM Yuasa battery back in and selling this. Any thoughts?
