I've not thought CB in a very long time but at one time did work the radio shop!!
Reading back through this old post, I'm guessing most folks who were having trouble had no idea of tuning the antenna and what getting the ground plane right meant.
Mostly old forgotten techie stuff but the antenna is called a 1/4 wave length and using the length of the antenna as 1/4 and the ground plain as another part, if remembered from years back and fully admiting to not planning to ever need that again! So if using this type antenna and not cutting the whip to right length or connecting to ground correctly, the radio is way off the correct frequency! Many were designed to screw in the metal roof of cars/trucks to get solid metal connections so doing it in a fiberglass Rv may be their problem?
Stuff to check which is long out of my field!
This info from post above?
But looking at drawings for your RV, I might be more help there?
This drawing might fit fo ryou and have good info on antenna on page 6?
I did a snip and marked up some items I thought might help. Click the drawing or go direct for best view and maybe it fits for your RV??
Throwing in the info and you can throw it out if totally wrong!
