Roof Cable Double Entry Gland?

I want to have two inputs for my portable satellite. Currently my travel trailer only has one input on the side of the trailer so I am only able to use one tuner on the directv box. I have a ladder mount for my winegard portable satellite.

I am about to replace a vent and vent fan so I figured now would be the time to try and install something on the roof near the ladder that lets me plug in a couple cable inputs.

I am looking at something like this from amazon below but I want to see if there is something better specifically for cable.

I would just use the device made for RV rooftop cable entry...available in 1-4 cable feeds:
https://www.amazon.com/Winegard-CE10.../dp/B003H2NFR8

Low profile, no moving parts or seals...just screw to the opening and apply caulking.

The amount of slack on the exposed cable is up to you...finish the cable end with a cap and chain:

Best luck

I used this exact item on my roof for solar cable
It has worked well for 2 years full time travel. No screws I used sikaflex to seal and “glue” it down. No leaks and allows a range of cable sizes. The entry fittings can also be unscrewed to move cable in or out or replace without disturbing the water seal around the base. The fittings rubber seal adjusts the the cable size without leaking
It’s a fairly thick “heavy” plastic box.
