Here's a technique I use:

There's a Cinch connector pair pushed up in the pipe. Keeps it dry and since
it's not bound under layers of tape and sealant, it only takes a moment to
pull it out of the pipe and break the connection.

I had a Ham IV rotor serviced by Norms and had them install a quick
disconnect connector in place of the terminal strip. 

The short cable from the rotor to the male connector they installed has a
black sealant around where the cable exits the connector. 

I have installed the female connector to my rotor cable and want to seal the
space where the cable exits the connector. What type of sealant is best to
use here? The connector is an Amps 9-pin of which
8 are used. The female end is labelled 206708-1.

What have you found to be the best way to waterproof the mated connectors on
the tower?
