Weboost cellular installation

I have a question. I am looking at the weboost to improve cellular signal strength. I have a 2016 Airstream Classic. The installation video shows that there is an outside antenna mounted on the trailer with what appears to be a coaxial cable that needs to be routed into the interior of the coach. Can I use the cable television inputs already mounted on the side of the trailer to complete the installation?
I don't want to put any new holes in the skin of my expensive coach or window screen.

I don't think the impedance would match the requirements of the booster. They are fairly sensitive to this and you may have a signal drop as a result.

Many of us have run the cable through the refrigerator vent, or through a plumbing vent pipe as in my case. There is a fairly decent thread covering the ins and outs on here if you search. good luck - they work great when properly installed!
