I want to use a newer TV outside of my trailer to watch sports events using an HDMI connection to the satellite receiver inside the trailer. I have several coax outlets similar to the attached photo on the outside of the trailer that I have used in the past, but the new satellite receiver only has HDMI and Red/White/yellow RCA ouytputs.. I have been unable to find any exterior RV HDMI access points similar to what I already have.. any ideas or suggestions..

That or if it's a newer TV, have you considered wireless?

Most HDMI outlets are just an outlet or a single port for mounting on a plate. What you can do is just make your own connection junction with whatever you like in it (HDMI, coax, USB etc.) and use a standard RV weatherproof cover and plate.

Here's a picture of what one could look like; just imagine a standard cover like over your ac outlet.

Note: this is a premade stock outlet from CDW, there are many more with different configurations.

Not sure of the nature of what you are trying to hook up, but they do make converter boxes for Component to Coax (they exist for HDMI also, but I think it's pricier). You could plug your RCA output into a converter box and then plug that into the coax line that runs to your outside ports.

The resulting signal wouldn't be as good as running HDMI the whole way, but it would save a fair amount of wiring and rigging.

Hdmi over coax and use your existing outside coax with a coax to the receiver module then hdmi to the tv .. there is a transmitter you connect to the hdmi out on the sat box then the coax to the outside. You’ll need a hdmi splitter if you want to watch the inside tv also 100 bucks up for the both the transmitter & receiver and another 30-50 for the hdmi splitter.
The cheap way , and this is how I currently send my wally to the bedroom tv is with a component ( the yellow white red out ) to coax adapter commonly called a game adapter. It sends the signal std definition to the rear the on coax on Channel 3 or 4. Turn the tv on to Channel 3 and change Channel’s with the sat tuner. The picture isn’t high def but it’s passable. All in 12 bucks.
