Coax Plug

Just purchased a 2008 Ultra-Lite 5th wheel. It has a coax connector just outside the window on the slide side. Previous owner know nothing about it. Looks like maybe a factory item. Anyone seen this before??

Satellite I'd bet.
Roof or tripod mounted.

That looks like a flat - ribbon coax. Probably your external park cable hook-up. Do you have external park cable hook-up anywhere else ... if not this is probably it, rigged this way because it was not installed to begin with ... could also be similar satellite hook-up

There are already external coax hookups. Because this was installed in the slide side I assumed it was factory. No visible wires inside and it would be quite a chore to install as aftermarket.

What is in the slide a table or a couch?

This is a window connector used specifically for antenna cables like WiFi or Cell Phone Boosters. I use the same one in my camper.

Here is where you can buy one. Eagle Aspen FC-300LX Slimline Flexible 8 Inch Flat RG6 Coax Window Cable (FC-300LX) from Solid Signal)

It's a large slide - both table and couch - this is on the front end near the table.

Ah, could have been a work station setup.
The people you got it from are they the original owners?

Yup - original owners - but not to RV or mechanical savvy so I am sure they didn't do it. I just thought someone else might have it on theirs. I will nave to remove the radio panel to see what it is.
