The silicone fusing tape I recommended is easy to remove as it has no adhesive. You apply it like tape and it sticks to itself. Over a couple of days time it fuses into one solid coating of silicone rubber. You can slit it lightly with a razor and it peels off easily.

My neighbor (an auto mechanic) had good success waterproofing his antenna connections with Permatex Dielectric Tune-Up Grease that is available at many auto parts stores.
