I really am not a fixer type of gal but this seems like it should be simple enough. Please respond appropriately for someone who has limited knowledge.
I have a hanging outlet in my horse barn. It seems to be properly wired per a contractor friend. All wiring enclosed in conduit, etc. The only problem is, it appears that this outlet box has lost its seal? The front plate is coming off (where the outlets are) of the rest of the box. There are no screws that can be tightened to fix this. The box says on it "For use in wet or damp spaces, use sealing compound to seal."
Okay, but what type of sealing compound? And do I apply it around the edges?
Don't worry, I know to shut off the power to the barn prior to fussing with anything electrical.
