Here's what we did:

We drilled a 7/8" hole just to the right of the left awning support into the outside kitchen area. Having the router in the kitchen area behind the TV was easy to access. We drilled a larger hole in the left side of the cabinet to get the power strip lead out. Then we got a splitter for the AC power the fridge uses.

We put 1/2" PVC through the hole in the RV wall. On the exterior side we cemented on a 90º elbow with the other end threaded. This allows us to screw the pipe "closed" when not in use. On the interior side we attached a 1/2" PVC coupler but didn't cement it, it is just helping hold the pipe in place. Finally we put Dicor around the outside of the pipe to seal around the PVC.

For now I am keeping the external antenna "temporary" and will take it down for transit. If that becomes too annoying I may look at a way to secure the cable up along the inner edge of the awning support.

Nice job! You can always use a threaded stuffing tube IWO of your plug and thus seal the cable penetration.
