I have to say I HATE those timers...they are pains in the butt!!! I do use them for our outdoor Christmas lights, but that's it. We use a digital timer for our auto door so that power isn't kept on/hot for 15 minute increments. With a digital, the power comes on, stays on for just one minute, and then shuts off. The next power on (right now set for 8 PM) closes the door, and a minute later the power goes off. Plus they're just so daggone easy to program.

Mine's just a plain old Westinghouse timer, but I have it inside the coop. You could always seal up an indoor one in a gallon zip lock baggie or under a flipped over bucket or something. Or just look for an outdoor rated digital????

I bought a Brinks digital timer . Its gonna be inside the coop . I have the intermatic outside to work the hot wire . Its weather proof. Hopefully, I'm set. I never can figure out how to work electronics by reading the directions.SSSSH.
