Weatherproof 12v outlet??

I have a new Winegard satellite antenna that requires a 12vdc power source to operate. I have found a place to tap the 12vdc inside the TT but am looking for a suitable outlet (weatherproof) that can be installed next to the SAT in jack on the outside skin of the trailer. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

My suggestion would be to look at the Marine Store's or any Marine Parts house.

I would do the Cigarette style so you can unhook the Sat and leave the Plug on the side of the camper.

the 1st pic looks like it would be a nice fit since it has a screwed on cover instead of a pressed fit

the 2nd pic is made by Marinco and its called a Seallink - it has a rubber cover which over time becomes loose and eventually breaks off so I do not recommend that for your application
