After bending and snapping off several coaxial-cable core pins, I came up with an inexpensive and dual-purpose solution. When not in use, I coil the cable and screw both ends into a coaxial connecter. This protects the pin on both ends. I also carry two cable lengths — a long one and a short one. If the distance from the cable connection at the RV site to my trailer is longer than the long cable, I can extend the length by using the connecter to add the short cable. These connectors can be purchased at any home-improvement or hardware store.
