a couple of suggestions:

1. Use a captive center pin on the N male connector.
for example, Kings Electronics Inc. N male, model # KN-59-176 for RG-214 
coaxial cable,
center pin is solder type and captive, will not move axially. Wrench 
clamp on the shield.
Kings cage = 91836     
mil spec:  M39012/01-0005

a few bucks each

2. consider adding a foam in place insulation, inside the plastic pipe 
to support the coaxial cable.
drill a 1/8" hole every few feet and squirt in the aerosol foam till it 
comes out of the hole.
Go for the minimally expanding insulating foam you will find in Home 
Depot or Lowes.
