I have a bunch of exterior outlets scattered around my home. They are
just a duplex 120 volt outlet in a plastic box covered by the typical
aluminum plate with a single spring loaded cover that is flush with the
exterior siding. The whole thing is far from water resistant...it just
looks like it is.
The breakers that supply many of these outlets trip frequently, usually
after a heavy rain, or on a day when the seas are heavy. (Two sides of
my house get a lot of salt water spray on a heavy day.)
Now, I have all of the supplying breakers turned off but in the spring
I'd like to fix the problem. What would you folks suggest for
replacement assemblies? I'm willing to replace anything that I can
without removing the siding.
