For the cable unless you are creating a new location for a tv you should already have cable to the tv connection points. But the method is fine. That is what i did to bring in the cable lead from my direct tv portable antenna. Just work real carefully when you're cutting into the wall and remember dicor, putty tape, and as a finish, clear silicone.
definitely!

2) On same vein, with all the hubbub about trailer coax wiring and tv's, and what goes where.......it would seem to me to do the same thing as #1 above but just put two female F connector plates on each side of the wall. Put it beside the area where tv is. Connect the two via short coax.


Both require drilling holes in camper. Unlikely DW will agree, but still I'd like to know your opinions of the feasibility of either/both.

Thanks.
I did the exact same thing you are talking about and it has worked fine for four years. As someone else said they must be offset due to wall thickness. Winegard has an outside fixture that is inexpensive and has a cover.

Thanks, guys.

No, not looking to have a power cord with two male ends. "Inlet"......a word I didn't know (DUH!!)......yeah, that.

Jaybird (I think) has it. Just some way to get an extension cord 'neatly' into the trailer and terminate on a plug.

Coax is same way. I THINK I am going to be able to figure out the trailer wiring, but in the past I've had to go through a window with a short piece of flat coax, and this would alleviate that problem.....plus it seems like it should be the way trailers are wired for tv.....if they have just one tv......

Thanks again.

Then go inside and plug to the inside plug.
West Marine sells a water-resistant receptacle. You drill a hole in the trailer and mount it. The outside has a 110V male to plug an extension cord into. I hardwired an extension cord to the fitting on the inside. We use it to power an electric heater in the living room.
Here it is in the catalog: MARINCO 15A Battery Charger Inlet | West Marine

Here is my install -

cable connector

Installed one of these cable connectors (bought from Furrion) to connect my portable direct tv dish to my receiver.

Lucky me! I have two receptacles, one in the door side rear trunk wall of the 5er with a cutout thru the floor and another in a compartment on the drivers side with a cutout in the bottom of the compartment. Really conveniemt.

The site team has done a cleanup in this thread, of posts that were off-topic to what the OP has stated he is doing in post #15.

Please keep this thread on track...and most of all, post responsibly.

Thank You
