Anyone use Starlink?

Hi folks, we just put a deposit on a 2017 classic 30. The plan is it leave it parked on our property while we develop the land. I'm fortunate to be in the zone where I can get the Starlink beta for satellite internet.

I'm thinking of trying to repurpose the cable/sat port on the side of the coach and running the cat5 hookup through there with a different mounting plate.

Does anyone know of kit to keep it looking factory? Or a another less invasive way to have a permanent setup? It looks like going through the fridge vent is possible as well but that seems kinda blah.

Thanks!

I've never seen a cat 5 port. Or a phone port for that matter.
How about the very nice stainless upgrade cable cover and repurpose it with a dongle of cat 5? Then find a chassis mount jack?

Or keep it simple. Run the Cat5/6 cable to the refrigerator ventilation area. Put a RJ to RJ connector there and run the cable from the Starlink under the bottom edge of the ventilation cover. Did that method on my Classic 30 and worked well for Cat 5, HughesNet Gen5 and WeBoost antenna connections. Saved drilling holes in the trailer.

Nice, how has the HughesNet coverage and speeds been while traveling?
