Question Recommend glands for antenna install?

I'm putting together a wireless setup, and am now inching my way towards the final pieces. I don't have a fridge vent in the 25RB, so I'll be forced to drill a hole. I'm looking for recommendations on glands or other components that can allow me to achieve an optimal result in terms of waterproofness, minimizing cable strain, etc.

I used a solar combiner box from AMSolar for an assortment of cables going from my wardrobe closet (streetside) directly to the roof. They also sell an assortment of cable glands that screw into knock-out ports on the sides of the box. A little careful cable routing avoids strain. I also pass my Solar Panel wiring through the same box...

I sealed the box to the roof on a flattish area, it's held down by screws and waterproofed by Silkaflex between the box bottom and the roof.

The box has a cover held on by 6-8 stainless steel screws, and I put a dab of non-hardening sealant putty in the screw recesses to seal out water. It can be easily dug out to gain access.

Search around the forums for other ideas on how to install radio gear in Airstreams, Antenna ideas, etc.
