Adding some extra coating to the cable would probably make it last
longer. If you mean what I think by brown tape (wide selotape type
stuff) then I don't think it'll help much: I doubt the adhesive would
survive long outside. Any time I've seen it after it's been out in
rain it's not sticking to what it was anymore. 

If you want the cable to survive for a while then getting a cable
designed to be outside has a far better chance of success than
modifying a normal cable.

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud,
after a while you realise the pig is enjoying it.
