Waterproof Ingress for Backup / Front Facing Cameras

Greetings!

I am installing a 4-camera system on my bus and looking for good waterproof ingress solutions. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BPLJRXFX...roduct_details

The side-view cameras were easy as the 4-pin harness can be threaded under the flush mount camera which came with a rubber gasket.

The rear view and front view cameras are a different story. They don't have rubber gaskets and don't mount flush anyways.

For my exterior lights I am using nylon cable glands for the ingress. They work great on wires with no harness, but my cameras have integrated 4-pin harnesses and therefor won't thread through the glands. I could cut through the wire and reconnect on the other side, but I'd rather not.

Have any of y'all come up with ingenious waterproof ingress solutions for your backup cameras?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply... but if the gland is big enough to squeeze the 4-pin connector through, then it is too big to synch down on the wire and make a watertight seal. Am I missing something? Doing something wrong?

Look at the second link the rubber is 2 halves. The 3rd link is a pair 4 pin solder on connectors male and female if you went this way you cut off the plug use a normal gland and solder inside where it's out of the weather.

I mounted mine on my rear rack and i have a whole bundle running under the bus to come in from underneath. This wouldnt look nice unless you had a ladder or something to strap it all to.
