    I run my coax thru the rubber seals around my slide out.

    You likely already have one or maybe two coax connection on the outside of your travel trailer waiting for you: the cable tv "F" coax connectors! Simply get a couple of readily available F to BNC adapters and you are ready to go. Yes, the F connector is 75Ohm and you are connecting a 50Ohm cable on either side, but any mismatch and resulting increase in SWR is really insignificant.

    I purchased a 1.5" PVC Type LB 90 degree Conduit Body, drilled a hole in the rear wall and installed and weather proofed. On the inside I screwed in a 2" nipple. It handles not only two RG8 or LMR400 cables, but CAT5 and or a remote LTE antenna wire. Carter, KH6FV
