Well, I've taken my display down and it's all getting stored till Thanksgiving. I put the controller in the box it was shipped in, horizontally, with the pigtails wrapping around to the side. Is this an acceptable (or what is the acceptable) way to store the controller for six long months?

Edit: typo..I really should utilize that Preview button more often...

Should work fine as long as it's sealed up.

I recommend storing lighting controller boxes in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. If you hang the boxes vertically, be sure to hang the pigtails in such a way as to minimize any strain on the board. Ideally, you should lay the boxes flat to take all strain off of the cord connections, but be sure to protect against pest entry (mice, wasps, birds, spiders, bats).

Nothing like opening an enclosure to find that it's been home to something for several months or more. Especially if those somethings bite or sting!

I lay mine a rubbermaid tote then drape the cords around the box. I can get 3 boards in 1 standard size rubbermaid tote.

Ya'll are way more organized than I am. Mine are still just kind of lingering around in the garage, being moved from place to place from day to day.

I bought a plastic shelving unit at Menards and put all my controllers and accessories on the shelves in the basement. I'm even lucky enough to have a dehumidifier in the basement. Works for Me!!

Mine is in my front room hooked up to my computer and some lights. Working on new light shows. Three new songs done, shooting for three more before Thanksgiving.
