2014 375FLF cable TV input

I have searched but cannot find where the Dish (or Starlink) cable would connect to the outside of the RV and distribute the signal to the TV's inside. Can someone provide some guidance?


Since we have StarLink and that is an ethernet cord, I'm thinking of routing it to the front fascia and into a storage area - maybe behind the fireplace. Thoughts?


Thank you for your help.

The Convenience Center, on the right wall, has Coax connectors for Cable and Satellite (i.e. Dish & DirecTV) Cables. There should be a Satellite connection for the Living Room TV and the Bedroom TV. There posts are for RG56 type cable.

Starlink uses a special CAT5e cable (4 twisted pairs for a total of 8 wires) and is incompatible with the coax port.

If you are adventurous, you can install a RJ45 external wall box, cut the Starlink cable and wire in Cat5 connectors, and use those to pass the cable through a wall.

We have Dish satellite. We run the cable through the slide window.
