Make sure it’s dry inside and out before you power it up and you should be fine.  If you have an area where you can set up a dehumidifier, that would be ideal.  The electronics are more of a concern than the mechanicals, but the electronics are quite robust.

Automatic Sprinklers were turned on without my knowledge.
