Liquid tight, junction box to PVC

I am gathering supplies for my garage sub panel project and have a novice question. I purchased 3/4" nonmetallic liquid tight to run through my sill to a pvc junction box to be mounted outside, then I plan on running PVC underground to the garage. But, none of the junction boxes at the Home Depot looked like they would take a mechanical liquid tight fitting on one side and a pvc glued fitting on the other. How do I attach the liquid tight to the junction box, do I need to drill a 3/4 in hole in the box?

You can use a 3/4" aluminum weatherproof box or a female adapter on the end of the conduit and screw your liquid-tight fitting into that.

DO they make a 3/4 adapter to run rigid pvc out of the box?

Yes, they have male threads on one side and a female connection that gets glued to the conduit.

You will need a box with 3/4" threads.
