just curious if you guys think this would help. If the housing has water in it (or moisture) after a rain storm, would a couple of small holes drilled in the bottom of the housing help to drain the water? Also, if the hosings are closed up so tight (waterproof), could it be condensation that is getting into the housing and causing problems? I was pondering the idea but wasn't sure if anyone else has had the problem before or had try this.

If rainwater is getting in, that problem should be addressed, i.e., taping/caulking seams/holes. Condensation can occur even in an airtight enclosure when the temperature of the box falls to the dew point of the air inside. However, considering the small volume of these boxes, dessicant should an adequate remedy for condensation.
Large, gasketed electrical enclosures are often fitted with a breather/drain to lessen moisture accumulation.
