[QUOTE=wuffwuff;934376]The exterior coax connector (dual tv & satelite) is recessed with a lid to protect it from the weather on my Flagstaff 27rlws. This makes it difficult to screw to coax cable on.
Getting the threads lined up and started is difficult, but it's hard to tighten the connector down as the flip up lid gets in the way.
Do other members have this problem, and how have you remedied the situation. [/QUOTE

I was just browsing through postings and saw your question. My husband has a solution for this issue. Check out this: www.rvcablegrip.com

Buy Mediabridge coax cable at Amazon. It comes with sleeves for the ends that will work exactly as you want them to.

The non screw on ones will you give you a pia moment after a few uses.....they lose their grip...also, the coax connectors in the wall plate might be installed backward....longer end inside

Make sure you get the ones with a split ring on the end of the connector.
They retain their grip even with excessive use.

Those haven't found there way out here yet!....Most buyers for HD and Lowes doen't have a clue! lol....And Radio Shack is just about as bad.....have found that the repair packs of ends have a lot better swivels and have a sort of line up action to 'em
