Re: Electrical box for AC outlet?
As long as the outlet will be "inside"....a hardware store box is just fine, as is the outlet itself. There is no need to pay the "marine" store premium. IF you have room, an oversize box is easier to use, or an extension ring on a standard box, similarly will give you a little more room in the box.
In the weather outlets, need better protection, that is a box and weatherproof cover that match the socket....same with the wiring connections.
