Re: Mast wiring strain relief
The only problem with tieing themn together is if you have to work on one of them while the mast is up. I suggest you find a way to run the wires through a pvc conduit which you have attached in the mast.
It is a perfect time to also put a junction box in if you havent already so in the future when the mast comes down, everythi8ng is a quick disconnect.
Also use this time to run at least one or two messanger wires down the conduit permanently for future use.
