Open up the fixture and you will understand a bit better how the wires go. Any wire or cable that comes out of your mast needs to have a drip loop. This means for example when you rx8 coax comes out the side of the mast route it down towards the boat a couple of inches then back up to the bottom of the antenae. This allows rain to drip off the loop instead of into the mast.
