My Compact Jr. is sitting on a field stone patio in the backyard. I've run a 25' extension cord to the trailer from an outlet on a post at my deck.
It runs into the trailer from a hole in the floor in a cabinet. The rest of the hole is stuffed with steel wool to prevent mice from coming aboard.
With the cord thus attached I have lights
and the ability to turn on a small heater in the event I want to make a winter visit.
But this being Michigan the cord is now running under a few inches of snow.
Is there a potential problem with this?
The cord is a heavy, yellow, three-pronged cord, which seems thicker and more flexible than the standard orange cords.
And the outlet is about a foot off the ground, a bit out of the wind and weather but it is conceivable that snow could pile around it. The outlet has a springloaded door but that is open with the cord plugged in.
Comments from experts much appreciate!
Here's a composite photo that shows the situation.
