Protection for Surge Protector and cheater box

Bought a 50A EMS Surge Protector and have been toying around with coming up with a cover to protect from the elements. They say they are weather resistant but I don't really trust that statement anymore. I've been setting it on a plastic soft drink crate to protect from pooling water and covering with a tote to protect from rain from above. Looks kinda "REDNECKY". Anyone have any creative way to accomplish this. Thanks in advance for your replies. Steve

Got a picture of it? Maybe modify a cheap plastic tool box. Or you might be able to find a NEMA 4 (weatherproof) junction/switchbox but that might be a little pricey

When I had one I just took a large 1 gallon ziplock bag and made a hole in the bottom and slipped the male plug thru. I duck taped that hole and cable so the ziplock bag was like a raincoat and covered the actual box from rain.
