Yes. Why would you not be able to?

question


some people are concerned about potential window sill leaks creating issues with wiring. it is perfectly fine to add a recpt( I think that is what the op wants to do) under a window. just do it properly.

Seriously?
If someone is worried about that that should be wiring or putting in windows.

What issues would they have to be concerned with?

Speedy Petey, I have read in other forums, maybe this one, where someone was concerned with moisture or leaking under windows. I was re assuring the o.p. that there really is no concern. If windows leaked this much there would be a much bigger issue than a device placed under one.Just trying to offer help.

Oh, I get it. My point was exactly what I made bold in your quote.

It's funny how people think the second something electrical gets wet it will go off like a bomb.
