  6. If you have a shed ,if not why not make a small water proof enclosure big enough to hold sockets ,12v psu then get a sparky to run armoured cable to that , then run 12v to pier via conduit underground , personally I would avoid 240v to a weatherproof socket open to elements , put it in a decent weatherproof insulated dry enclosure .
  7. I run dew straps ticking over in damp weather under my telegizmo cover
