I have used a Telegizmos 365 tarp for years to protect telescopes and mounts from the elements with excellent results. They come in all sizes.

I would cover it with a small plastic sheet. Just keep rain from impacting the box directly.

I can easily believe this. I’m using a rain app but it’s not bullet proof so I’m sure the unit got wet at some point. Unfortunately this is the best I can do at this point. 

What’s interesting is that when the first symptoms of the yellow light occurred and I had issues for a few night , suddenly the mount worked just fine for a week after that again.
