Running Electrical Wire into Surface-Mounted Receptacle
After more than two hours of reading articles, watching videos, and looking for instructions that don’t exist, I still haven’t learned how Romex coming from the interior of my wall should make its entry into the back of a surface-mounted plastic box for a weatherproof receptacle like the one pictured here. Do I need some kind of weatherproof clamp that screws in, or can I remove one of the knockouts and caulk around the Romex where it enters? I will be attaching this to the surface of a SmartSide panel.
