Re: Good mail order place for battery cables?
Dunno, Maine, I think you're cutting corners in your old age.
Not that I haven't been known to do the same thing, but I was taught that IF water can follow a cable, you run the cable into the BOTTOM of the box, with a drip loop, so even if water runs "down" the cable it will always run down and out away from the box, never down into it.
Standard telco practice from the Western Electric / AT&T Longlines days, and I suspect from telegraphers before those.
