Eric, you might have a look at Furrion's web site. They have some nice, but expensive, utility points. I like this one.

Oliver uses a lot of Furrion stuff in their trailer, but looking at their website and trying to find a dealer, I am never sure how real their stuff is. But maybe looking at marine supply places would be good

I found the same thing with Furrion, Leon. In that their product is hard to find for sale, at least to Canada. I had been looking at buying one of their AC connectors for the Trillium I am rebuilding, but gave up.

They do have plastic ones that are cheaper than the metal ones.

Though, I bet one could fit a couple connectors in the larger one.

Those Furrion receptacles look nice. They are available on Amazon US.

Furrion definitely has improved their sales network over 18 months ago when I was considering them.

Did you see this Jack antenna on Amazon. I think it is the same as the one Escape installs but for a pole install. I don't know about FM reception doesn't mention.

That's the one I've been considering switching to. It's that or the round one. Wish I had side by side comparisons of performance. The round one has the advantage of being easier to mount on a pole. More research required.

You can buy them both and give us all a performance report! So far I'm leaning toward the round one since it is all ready for USB power and that's easy to provide from 12V. But maybe since Reace already uses the Jack, the ones he installs are 12v powered? Anybody with one know?

This MAY be the correct connector to connect a 50 ohm cell booster antenna coax cable to, bring it into the trailer and connect to the booster amp inside the trailer. I'm thinking it could just replace the TV type coax on that duplex one I posted above and have a very simple sealed connection for both the TV and cell booster inputs. (Leon is looking into other cable type solutions too.) Amphenol Connex Part Number 172124

That's definitely 50 ohms, and it is a bulkhead connector so it is suitable for feeding a signal through a panel (such as the trailer wall). It is a Type N (Neill) connector, so it's suitable if that's what is one your cables. "N" and "TNC" (Threaded Neill-Concelman) connectors are similar, but are not the same, so if your cables are TNC this won't work.
