We Drilled a small hole in ours and Bungied it under the deck behind the dash. You could GE Seal it once you feed the wire but ours hasnt been and knock on wood, havent gotten wet yet. Hope it helps Good Luck!

Drill 2 holes in the side of the pelican box, run the gps antenna wire through one hole and run the ignition/power wire through the other hole and seal it up with goop on the inside and outside of the hole. The pelican box has an air breather in the box for condensation built in. You definitly do not want to keep the holes not sealed as the connectors will rust on you if you don't. Hope this helps, Al
