I am looking for something that would be in a covered plate to protect it from road water / elements..

That was an example of the various configurations of standard communications/media plates. Any standard exterior RV electrical outlet cover sold in every RV, boat, home improvement or online will cover the plate and make it weather tight.

You can view HDMI WALL BOX panels from AMAZON as well... I have run some pretty long HDMI cables with good success...

It sounds like you've got a Dish Wally receiver. You can convert the composite - AVI (Yellow-Red-White) outputs to use the coax cable (channel 3 or 4) or you'll need to run an HDMI cable to the outside.

You could use this device to convert the signal:

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

If it's got HDMI, there are wireless dongles that can work.

I had 2 TVs connected over coax via the composite output (3 RCA jacks) at home. Usable but the pictures weren't the best. Changed the kitchen one to HDMI over coax with significant pic quality improvement.

The pic/sound is delayed (a little less on the HDMI TV). The great room and kitchen TVs are open and close and the sound delay is annoying so the kitchen sound is turned down. This should not be a issue with a outside RV TV but may be with multiple inside TVs.

I'm sure the delay occurs in the receiver outputs and not the converters.
