Re: How much dew is too much?

Not necessary. Use the plug covers though since they really aren't doing you any good in a bag. But, even in the absence of that, the CP boxes from AP are bullet proof. A believe Roland says only a direct lightning strike could harm them.

With that said though, they aren't waterproof. So don't leave them out in the rain, hurricane, tsunami, etc.

Subject: [ap-gto] How much dew is too much?
 
This question is only in reference to the GTO mount, not the ota. So is it only the control box that should be protected against a heavy dew? Aside from the socket covers, does anyone use anything like a dew shield for the control box? Or is it not necessary?

Thanks
