Just in time for summer fun, IT-Works’ Ben Brown wanted a weather tight enclosure for his camper’s water level gauge, so designed, 3D printed, and installed one.
Here’s his project:
A case to hold indicator gauge.
Tabs to pull out indicator for battery changes
Polycarbonate plastic window with UV filter
Indicator inside cover and case
Plastic cover allows button to be pushed in a water tight container.
A gasket to keep water out.
Drill 22 mm hole in camper ( allow slack on cord so indicator can be pulled out to change battery)
After 4 screws have attached case to camper (add some silicone behind seal) push in the indicator connected to probe wires.
Push on the cover and then tighten set screws with Phillips screwdriver to lock on cover.
