Easier Cable Connectors

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

As I’ve gotten older, it’s more difficult for me to line up and screw in the coaxial cable from the campground into the connection on my RV … not to mention the sometimes-awkward locations of the cable connections at the campgrounds. Throw in darkness and/or a little rain, and the problem is compounded.
A simple solution is to install two screw-on F connectors, one on each end of the cable. The male end screws on to the coaxial cable and the female end pushes on to the RV and campground connections. Now the connection can be made in less than a minute, with no degradation in picture quality. High-quality connectors are available at electronics stores.
