We have a 2016 Vista LX 35B that we took delivery of in June. I purchased a WeBoost cell signal booster and a Wilson Trucker spring-mount antenna and want to attach the antenna to our coach and run the cable into it. This is critical for me since I will be working while my wife drives.
To test the antenna and booster, I attached the antenna to the top of the ladder and ran the cable into the master bathroom window and set it up with the inside antenna where I wanted it. It worked great and boosted the signal 20-30db. This is not how I want to set it up, I need to have this installation clean so I can use it while driving down the road.
I was originally going to set it up on the passenger side and go into the kitchen cabinet with the antenna wire, but the awning was in the way. Since I will most likely be sitting at the dinette while working, it makes sense to attach it to the driver's side and go into the cabinet above the TV.
My plan is to attach the antenna to the SIDE of the coach, just below the roof line and run the cable into the cabinet I mentioned. I have never done this before and I am skittish about this.
I can take pictures once the rain from TD Nine stops.
How do I know if there are any electrical, etc. lines running where I want to drill?
What screws do I use to attach the antenna bracket to the side of the coach? I am pretty sure the skin of the coach is fiberglass.
I know I will have to use some sort of sealant to plug up the holes after I drill them. I was planning on using Dicor, but any suggestions would be great.
