We bought our Adventurer used a year or so ago. The manual says that there is a factory installed CB antenna, with the cable connector for it, plus electrical connections, located under the dash. I have looked high and low and can not locate the thing. Anyone have any hints???

I found the wireing for mine in a plastic bag just above where my left foot is while sitting in the drivers seat.

Look or feel behind the fuse panel on the far left. It's there but you may have to reach way up. The power and antenna coax will be in a plastic bag.

Thanks,

I have crawled all thru that area, and do not recall a plastic bag, but I will try again (as soon as it gets out of the shop for a blown hydraulic line)...

Check the roof for the antenna. The antenna prep was an option a few years ago and if there is no antenna there are no wires.

You may find coax and battery wires coiled up in bag under your dash.

OldBaldGuy, you could remove the plastic trim that runs down along the backedge of the windshield on the interior. You'll find the CB cable routed behind the trim piece. Then have someone tug on the cable up there while you look under the dash for the rest of it. Could it be that someone before you had hooked up a CB and left it in a different location? It's a wire jungle under there!

troth,

The original owner did all kinds of stuff, added some super sterio system (that he removed when we bought it), re-wired all kinds of things (we had to have the main power wiring harness replaced, he had the TV, etc, running off of the chassis battery, all kinds of interesting things), but I assumed (I know, I know) that he used the original radio antenna for the aftermarket radio he installed). I can not find any "extra" coax running around under there, but it is indeed a jungle under there. Will keep looking, soon as we get it back...

As Troth mentioned, the CB wire comes into the inside of the coach in the compartment above and in front of the drivers seat(to the left of the TV). Then it runs down that plastic molding on the left side of the windshield(the left A pillar). It has about 4 or 5 screws holding in on if I remember right. When you remove that plastic molding you will see the cable along with other wires running down it and into the left side of the dash. Following that, you should be able to find it under the dash along the left kick panel somewhere.
Another place to look for it would be to raise the dash up and look around in there. The previous owner may have moved it into there somewhere.

I know it has been a month since this post was las answered, but on my 04 Adventurer, the antenna "bag" was above the steering column. Simply lift up the dash (it is on a hinge, yes-just lift up the whole dash) and there they are. If they are not in the bag, then it is much easier to find them here instead of crawling underneath. Hope this helps.
