    This is border line DIY but ...........

    I would think it should have been insulated from the factory. I would insulate it if it were me but I supposedly know what I am doing ! LOL
    If sense were so common everyone would have it !

    Any advice provided is worth exactly what you paid for it, not a penny more not, a penny less !!
