Default CB antenna routing

CB radio no signal with factory antenna. Connected a Wilson had laying around and all is good. Anyone know where BB ran antenna to get to the roof ? Hate more holes if possible to use existing location. Thanks

Your coax is most likely still good . The antenna and mount can be changed out using the existing hole and coax . I can help you troubleshoot and come up with a replacement plan .

Did BB put 2 CB antennas on the roof???
I have what appears to be 2 cb antennas up foward . One in front and one to the rear of the fwd roof AC.
Also there are two what appears to be 2. 5/8 wave 2 meter FM antennas on the roof as well
one is at the rear of the bus and one towards the front. No idea what the FM antennas connect to as I m not a HAM and no signs of any radio installation

One of them is a cellphone antenna. The FM antennas connect to your FM radios.

Harold, do I need to get some parts coming to make these repairs?
