Mobile connector outside 24x7 ok?

Apr 28, 2021
recently installed nema to be used with the mobile connector for home charging. The mobile connector is plugged in and hanging. The plug is in a weather proof enclosure, but the connector is exposed to all sort of weather. So is it OK just to leave the connector like this? It is 4 feet above ground so it will never be submerged in water, but rain/storm will hit it from time to time.

I wasn't sure. But since I had to build an enclosure around my outdoor socket (which is only weatherproof when nothing is plugged in) anyway, I extended the enclosure so that it also covers the umc hanging off. The Front is plexiglass so you can see what the umc is doing.
