Interesting.  My G-800SDX was up 5 years and finally got struck by lightning
causing it to run at slowest speed only.  So, it was removed last month
(replaced with G-1000DXA).  There was zero evidence of moisture in the
connector.  Turns out the 800 and 1000 have the same connector and control
box and the new rotator is running with the old cable and box.

At what height is your 800 installed.  Mine is at 146 feet.

Stations", and lot's more.  Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions
