weld a stand off to the side of the pit with a mounting tab. Screw a clear plastic rubber maid box to it (it will keep it dry in case of rain) drill a hole in the bottom to run the leads out of the box drill a hole in the side of the pit and weld a pipe nipple in it to route the leads into the pit you can cap it when not in use.
