Has anyone come across an appropriate rj45 receptacle that is suitable for outdoors?

Sean, something like the one in this photo would probably work. The screw cap has a hole designed to pass a thicker cable through, either a CAT5e or a CAT6, so the thickness of the cable makes a watertight seal against the hole in the cap. You just plug in to the RJ45 Jack and screw it down. On the other end you push it through a suitable sized hole and use the nut on the inside of the trailer to secure it. Then, just plug a patch cord into the inside RJ45 and run it to your switch/router. When you're underway, the cap with the cable running through it is replaced with a cap that has no hole.
There are other types like the one in the 2nd photo, which just has a simple cap attached with a chain so you don't lose it.
