The First Gear Heat-trollers are pretty well sealed, I think. I don't have that brand, but know folks that do and none have had any problems that I know of.
I always have the battery pigtail come out from under the seat and just connect the Y harness to that. I find that the coiled wire harness is easier to deal with, running straight to the gloves (assuming not using a heated jacket), but the straight wire Y under the jacket works OK, too. When I am finished with the gear, I put the cap on the pigtail and push it under the edge of the seat. It rarely works out and I keep the part that sticks out short enough so that it is not a problem even if it does fall out from under the seat. It also makes it easy to get to and used with the battery tender.
Mounting the controller is a problem. On another bike, I had them velcroed to the riser tops. Ok, but not perfect. That was after I had used the pouch that came with the controller to hook on my jacket belt. If you have a handy place on your jacket that can accept a belt clip, First Gear has a pouch with a belt clip that fits your controller. On the Voyager, I am going to velcro them to my fairing bag flaps, but mine has a tether on it that I will secure just in case the velcro comes loose. My controllers are wireless (2 controllers with 2 dials each for gloves, jacket, pants and boot inserts), so they would go flying if they came off the fairing pouch.
