I have 2 sets lights outdoors, they advise to keep the supplied transformer dry. At the moment Ive put them in plastic bags to keep out the rain as a temporary measure. After looking on line I can only see large dri boxes for numerous cable and plugs . I want to use something just bigger than a transformer to keep it dry - with no water getting in where the cables come in and out. One end of the transformer the cable is sealed in so I cant push the cable into a small hole in a protective box, the other side of the transformer has a two pin small socket so the cable could be pushed through a small openeing here . Any suggestions - as to what to buy or DIY ideas appreciated. Why sell outdoor lights with a transformer to use outside but then you have to keep dry with no box supplied ?
Hi thanks for getting back with a reply , the cables are not short in fact there is too much cable masses of length. Ive got a dri box to put the electrics in - plugs etc . its the transformer itself they say keep dry - may have to do a box like you say or adapt a plastic tuppa ware container. Just thought there may be something to buy as loads of people have outside transformers .
