The pigtails are not waterproofed in any manner aside from being "outdoor" extension cords. I have my rig set up such that a drip loop is formed so if any water runs down the HLT it does not have the ability to drip into the connection to the extension cord.

For my heatstick, I put a 6 foot cord on the stick, and made a 10 foot extension cord, with switched GFCI outlet. Later, I doubled the length of the extension cord.

For my upcoming 240V setup, I will have to make a 50 foot extension cord. I am going to put the 240V outlet in the garage, right under the breaker box for ease of installation. That will be a long cord when brewing in the garage, but I will need the length when brewing on the patio.
