Sounds like an ingress issue, especially if the gates are old-ish.

Best thing is to isolate the gates and maybe IR test on the feed out from the house.

Thats my thoughts too i think they just need a good clean and service and perhaps the joints re waterproofing with new glands etc. Was hoping to find someone who had experience of BFT and could do the job.....
