2017 Jayco 174BH, No factory external cable connector.

I have a 2017 Jayco 174BH, this TT has No external Cable/Satellite connector. How difficult, or easy would it be to install an external connector? The TT does have a roof mounted digital antenna that has a connection inside of the trailer. So what is my next move? I need to install a cable feed thru with an external connection that has another cable hook up inside the trailer. I want to use this connection for satellite TV in the trailer with an external directv setup. It seems like an easy thing to do, install a feed thru for the satellite connection. I need to know what parts and pieces I will need to do this. Thank You.

I would think the easiest way would be to run an RG6 satellite cable through the slide seal when you want to use the satellite. Is your TV in a slide out? the other way would be to drill a hole out the back of your TV cabinet and out through the siding and install a sat cable plate and seal the plate to the siding.

This a small, basic/inexpensive camper. I have no slides. I have purchased some flat 6" feed thru cables that should work from the entry door. I have not tried them yet. Just thinking of making the connection more permanent, like drilling a hole and using a mounting plate/connector on the outside to the inside.
