    Hi all. Hoping for a little help. I tried searching the forum but may be using the wrong words or I'm asking a new question maybe. Is there a dust/water cap I can put over one of the female coax leads from a Gerbing dual heat controller? I'm only using one knob for heated gloves and mount the controller out in the elements. The male coax cable to the battery has a nice rubber cap to keep the connector clean and dry when not in use and I'm looking for something similar but for the female end. I tried the Gerbing site as well as revzilla without success, then Google which either brings me coax audio/video results or brings me back to revzilla and the like lol. I know, I could buy a heated vest or socks and plug in to solve the problem but just don't want to spend the money as I don't need the other gear for current riding (commuting). Where's Radio Shack when I need them? Sigh. Thanks for thoughts and help!

    What I would do is to visit an auto accessory store and look for a vacuum line cap. They usually come in a package with a variety of sizes, one of which should fit on your connector and will cost a lot less than trying to source one from Gerbing. You might also try an electronics or audio store (like Best Buy) if you want something that looks better than just a rubber cap.

    Thanks Richard, will try that. I don't care about looks. I have a Madstad screen and my panniers are beat up pretty good! I also thought about just putting some heat shrink tubing over the end but a cap would be easier. I could browse through a good hardware store too, might come across something random.
