In most units, the outside cable in runs to a switch box that controls the antenna. It's the coax plate behind the TV with the little button. Button on, signal from antenna, button off, signal from outside input.
Since the signal is passing through there, it ends up not being a direct run for satellite purposes. Some rigs have a separate dedicated satellite input for this reason.
Depending on how much modifications you feel up to doing, you could always add your own run and provide your own outside connection. Not everyone's comfortable with cutting new holes in their trailer though.
