Would like to know if there's a trick to installing an in-use cover with
vinyl siding. Right now, the outlet is effectively recessed. Finished
appearance is important. Thanks.

Use a box entender, and one of those trim kits the siding company probably
sells, or even a weather-proof raceway box painted the right color,
surrounded by J-channel. If you are artful, a block of wood carefully done
can do the same thing as the trim kit or raceway box. Did you do the siding
already? Dealing with this stuff is best done before the siding goes up.
Not exactly sure what you mean. If the existing raintite cover is horizontal
and sitting properly on the siding, the "in use" cover should fit the same
way. If a slob vinyl siding installer just left the outlet attached to the
siding underneath and cut a hole through the vinyl, you've got problems.
