We got some stormy weather today so I got concearned about a few of my sets. Glad I did. They say if you play with fire sooner or later you'll get burnt. I guess the same goes for water. 3 of my sets were touching the water and 1 w80 wasn't so lucky. I have the cam on top, board in the middle and batteries on the bottom, only the batteries and the switch were wet.

and this is the w80. The other ones were on drainage ditches, this one is in a pothole. I was surprised this one filled up so much.

Have you thought of attaching a section of closed cell foam on the rod then the cam above it. As the water rises it takes the cam with it. You may have to modify the rod from round to square, the fitting and length of rod as well. That's too close for comfort.


I've done something like that before with a floating plank and styrofoam and a rod. Worked good.
