I would like to add a waterproof connector to my Icom AH-4 antenna tuner. What connector for 4 wires would be water proof for outside mounting?

One for connecting trailer lights is designed to be waterproof for outdoor use.

Find them at the local auto parts or trailer accessories shops.

another option for you, especially if you need longer wires.

Hi N7GCO,

I have used ones from Amazon that are rated for IP65 industrial rating.  They work fine and I use a little silicon caulk where the wire exits to make sure it is watertight.  I also put a UHF feed thru and a short coax.  I got the idea from a post I saw on line.  I use the modified one for travel and its nice to be able to add the amount of cable you need, I carry two 25ft coax and control cables for portable use.
