WeBoost inlet

Iím thinking about installing a new inlet for connecting the WeBoost coax cable.
I do not want to run the cable through a window or through the back of the fridge, but would rather have a permanently installed inlet.

Does anyone have any recommendation? Exactly what type of coax connector am I looking at for the WeBoost Destination RV cables?

Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

I use this for cables of all sorts: power from my portable solar, telephone (long-term camphosting), ham radio using coax similar to WeBoost, ground wire, etc. It is mounted adjacent to the rear bench seats, close to the batteries.

Thanks for the suggestion, that seems like a plausible back up plan for me at least…

However, I’m more thinking something in the lines of https://www.amazon.com/Furrion-Conne...s%2C175&sr=8-5

This gives me permanent cable installation on the inside, easy connection on the outside when I raise the antenna, and a pest proof inlet.

I’m mostly concerned about which type of coax connector WeBoost use, and finding an inlet that has such a connector (or one that I can retrofit such a connector in).

Smartplug has weather proof coax as well as Ethernet inlets.

I ordered my E19 with the with the TV prep package, specifically so I could use the exterior cable connection to pass the WeBoost Destination RV antenna through to the interior. It works very well.

I believe this is the exterior hardware used by ETI:

Did you need to swap out the connector, or is the TV antenna the right side?

The WeBoost Destination RV unit I purchased uses standard F-type 75ohm coax connectors for both the exterior and interior antennas, the same ones utilized for residential cable/satellite TV connections.

I believe that some of the commercial WeBoost units might use N-Type connectors, but not the Destination RV model (unless there was a recent change).

Here is a link to a post about my specific installation:

...
Type-N through wall connectors are a bit more difficult to locate but are available. I used something similar to the attachment using a hole under the bed area for a permanent cable connection - but out of sight.
