Our house has some directional external lights (the mount allows us to pivot the fixture).
I just tested out one of them today by putting in a bulb. The bulb flickered (it's a good bulb) when I turned it on and it did not stay on.
I'm not going to fix it right now.
Do I need to worry about rain shorting out the fixture if I don't put a bulb in the socket?
It would only short out if the switch is in the ON position right?
Do outdoor rated light fixtures mitigate against this?
