I I had Comcast hook up cable tv service to bundle everything together. I suspended my direct tv service just to save a few dollars and help pay for vacations. The cable bundle is $60 cheaper. I plan on reactivating service in a few months. The dumb cable guy cut the fitting of my multiswitch to us the wires. I thought I could just get new ends but it appears the multiswitch uses a fitting with a rubber boot on them. Where can I get them or can I just use regular ones.

Those rubber boots are for protection from moisture, etc. They probably came with the switch, not the connectors. If your multiswitch is in a protected location you probably don't need them.

When you re install the coax with a new connector on them tighten them with a 7/16 inch wrench a 1/8 turn after the connector makes contact. This will help with keeping moisture out. You won't need the rubber boot if you do this.
