You should put holes only in the bottom of the box for mounting. Then
leave a vent hole in the bottom for drainage of any condensation.|
I have a couple of large electrical junction boxes with the lid and gasket outside for cables. All entrances are from the bottom. No holes to mount anything except in the bottom. Stays nice and dry.

I need to weatherproof a relay box. Under test conditions it accumulated an inch of water in the bottom over a six month period. What is a specific brand of silicone sealant recommended? I understand the kind with vinegar smell (acetic acid) will corrode electronics components in a sealed environment. Also, is there a need to insert a desiccant in the box?
