I heard someone shorted his out by letting it sit face up so water went inside the plug but he might have been messing with it at the time and water accidentally poured in. I think if his cord was plugged in at the time that might not have happened.

I opted for the portable unit and have a plastic bag on it with a hole in the bag for the plug to go thru it. I used mine this winter and that worked okay, the cover on the pedestal also gave cover to deflect the drops of water.

I also have a cable and lock on mine so crummy thieves don't walk off with it. And I was glad I had that because last time out camping it would not stay plugged in from all the weight of it just kept unplugging itself from the pedestal. I was able to wrap the cable around it to lock it into the pedestal.

Highly unlikely but you'd find my $250 unit in the garbage can about 15 minutes after that.
or just turn the by-pass on on the remote for the hardwired unit and keep on trucking.

However I'm interested enough to buy one, so I just ordered it from Amazon. I will use it on my up-coming summer trips.

I'll let you know how far it makes it...
If it ever stops working, just send it back and get a new one.

Had mine out in many a storm.. Never a problem.

If yours stops working and TURBS doesn't get it... I'll take it and make sure it is "properly recycled" wink wink..

Was that a single eye double wink or right left eye wink?

Mine worked, but maybe some would say it failed, last summer in 105 degree heat. It shut off power to the TT. After maintenance finally showed up, it turned out to be a bad receptacle on the pole. Glad I had that unit. I sweated for a few hours. But my TT a/c didn't fry, and neither did anything else. It just shut down till it was ok to work again.

I think it's female, like that.

But it works.
