Hello,

I am wondering where you get those ritetime boxes at again that many of you mount your 16 channel boards in. I have heard this being discussed before but cannot remember the store, i am thinking home depot, but will someone please correct me if i am wrong!

thanks

There are no more Jeremy:(


I think some have found them on E-Bay. And if you check the old forum I think someone found an alternative.

Found this on the old board. This is similar to the box housing our 8 ch LOR.

"All,

I found a pretty good alternative to the RITETIME boxes. LOWES sells the ORBIT watermaster enclosure(model 57095) cost 20.99 before sales tax. You will need a dremmel to cut out the corner outlet plastic and the center molded support. for the front panel.

It's perfect for both 16D and 8D hobby boards. see the pics enclosed

Maybe i should just stick to me initial idea, mounting them to a strong piece of wood and then that would hang up in our garage, to keep it weather safe.

That looks like a good enclosure, have any idea if its got holes in the back of it, or would i have to drill some myself?

It's quite a tight fit, but the 16D boards WILL fit in thatt enclosure. When I did my first ones, that's the enclosure I used. I mounted 4 quad boxes on the cover with my outlets. I'll eventually move those boards into new enclosures when I find one that I like for a decent price. For now, the old enclosures will work fine with some plastic weatherproofing over the outlet boxes....

I went the really cheap route for this year. I used some 12 quart lidded containers, Sterilite brand, to mount my controllers in. Mine are not going to be outside directly in the weather so I mine are not weatherproof. One of them may be put inside a large present made from 2" insulation foam so it will still be protected.

Both of those seem like decent ideas. I am just trying to figure out how I will mount the new Boards when I buy them over the 2006 year. I haven't quite figured out all my cords and all but hopefully I will eventually!
