Keep Water Out
I prefer to use a power-cord connector with an angle head to take stress off the connector, but wet weather was a concern. I came up with an idea to keep the connection point between the pigtail and power cord dry, whether it’s misty out or raining hard. Split a 6- to 8-inch plastic funnel and fit it around the power cord above the connecter. Seal the funnel split with heavy-duty duct tape. Attach a hose clamp to the funnel tip to hold it in place. The power cord can still be easily disconnected below the funnel when you’re packing up your campsite.
