Starlink for RV - Cable Storage Reel

The perfect cable reel for your Starlink lead

You've invested in a Starlink for RV because you want a high quality internet connection, now you need to find a way of looking after it. We know how precious the connection cable is, and now you can have a beautiful, sturdy, tangle free, protection and storage system with Flat Out's Compact Multi-Reel. 

The standard issue 23m lead fits on the Compact Multi-Reel, and the 46m option fits on our Narrow Multi-Reel. We also provide short lengths of flexible mini-conduit to protect the bend at the centre core.

Being data cable, for added convenience you can leave some length inside the Multi-Reel when in use. DO NOT do this with electrical lead, it will heat and melt. Customers have devised multiple ways to use the cable on the Multi-Reel; you can run it in end to end, or double it up and start at the fold so both ends poke out (half the winding), convert the centre end to an RJ45 female and so on. More setup info is below the products.

25m Starlink Replacement Cable with Stackable Cord Reel

The ultimate way to replace your Starlink cable - new April 2024!
After chats with many of you, we have learned that you love the quality of Starlink internet, but your 3 most common complaints are: 

  1. The cable is awkward to handle, time consuming to work with, and difficult to keep protected while traveling.
  2. The plugs are hard to use, and your are worried about damaging them with regular connecting/disconnecting. You tend to leave the cable attached (more awkwardness!).
  3. The cable seems to fail easily, and is expensive to replace.

For a full solution to all 3 issues, we have developed a solution suitable all Starlink mobile users. ...read more

Starlink Gen 2 users: Starlink cable is a Cat6 cable with proprietary SPX plugs on the end. It is not UV rated and does not meet Australian standards for outdoor use (probably why so many are having difficulties). You can replace it with this Cat6 on Multi-Reel product and: 

  • a set of ready-made adaptors ($100), or
  • a DIY set of adaptors using your existing cable SPX plugs (with a little skill, and a pair of RJ45 female connectors such as these ~$20)  
  • 3m extension mentioned in 'ideal setup' below for optimal ease of use.

Starlink Gen 3 users: Your modem and dish are already set up to accept RJ45 leads, so this product is ready to go, although we do recommend the extension mentioned below. 

Ideal Setup - add a 3m extension: Connect the outer end of your new cable to your dish, unspool as needed so you can lay the remainder lead and multi-reel under your Caravan/RV, then use a 3m Male-Female extension cat 6 connected to the inner jack of the cable, and run it into your RV to connect to your modem. Images and parts coming soon, for now you can order an extension here )

 

This 25m lead and Multi-reel is currently warehoused separately, dispatch is usually 2-3 business days after your order is confirmed.

    25cm Network Cable Conduit - best cable management for Starlink RV

    25cm length of flexible conduit, use this to protect the bend in the middle of your Starlink for RV cable or other network cable you wish to keep on the Compact Multi-Reel. 

    We have not found a need to do this for other leads, and it may also be overkill for your Starlink cable, but we feel for such a valuable item, we want to give it the best protection possible. 


    As network cable doesn't heat, you can use it while still leaving some coiled in the centre of your multi-reel. As such we recommend the best method for managing long network cables is to bend it at the middle and wind it into the Multi-Reel in twin-form. That way both plugs are accessible at whatever length you pull out.
