I am new to this hobby, and am sitting around scratching my head pondering what and how I want to do things. Which leads me to my question of the day: Is there a preferred type of connector to use to connect a string of lights to a weatherproof box? I am not asking about xConnect, vs. Ray Wu connector, vs. Amphenol or other style of connector. I am interested to know if you were to start over from scratch would you rather have a flexible pig tail hanging out of the bottom of a controller box or a rigid panel mount/bulkhead type connection? I realize that there may be a host of different factors that play into this, like environment, in my case I am in central Alberta and it is not uncommon to have a foot of snow sitting on the ground in the middle of December. I am planning on using a weather proof connection, and having the weather proof box that the controller sits in a couple feet off of the ground. Most boxes that I have seen, either professionally made or diy boxes have flexible pig tails hanging out of the bottom. It could be that there are lots of boxes that have a rigid connection on there that I haven’t seen examples of, but there may also be good reason why all the boxes that have a flexible pig tail have them that I have not thought of. For myself I thought it would make more sense to keep the connections as high as possible so they are not sitting on the ground in potential ice or hanging out in the accumulated snow. But on the other side of the coin I also don’t want to have the box three or four feet off the ground where my wife will be upset with the eyesore. Any thoughts or advice to share?
