It is a rectangular black slim box, velcroed to the bottom of the cabinet. No markings or brand. I figure is the one that came with the unit.

It sounds like your antenna are too close together and creating a feedback. Do you see red instead of green lights sometimes? Try to remount your outside antenna at the opposite end of the trailer.

Only the green light shows when powering up, solid and stays that way.

I did additional testing on my iPhone X and Verizon Jetpack. When physically touching the antenna, the signal strength on the phone goes from one bar to all 4. 10 inches appart it goes back to one. The Jetpack did not show any difference: close, away or with the Weboost 4X powered off.

The slim black box you speak about sounds like the "candy bar" antenna which is only good when touching the back of the cell phone and is useless if it is more than a foot away. Your installation is not according to the manufacturer specs for separation. These boosters work but you need to follow the recommendations. There are several threads here and you tube videos on the various setups
I have the 4g-x drive with all we boost brand equipment including 400 lmr cable, omni directional antenna at one end of the trailer and the panel antenna at the other end mounted under the cabinet above the dinette and it works well at the dinette. We had the candy bar antenna initially but since it had to be on the back of the phone to work it was only good for one user so we upgraded to the panel.

No, the SureCall Omni Antenna is an outdoor antenna. The outdoor antenna must be placed on the roof as far away from your WeBoost as possible (minimum of 12 ft. if possible). I used the Wilson Flat Plate Indoor antenna mounted to the ceiling in front of the refrigerator with VHB Velcro strips (no drilling).

Yes, my experience also.

I'm also debating on which INSIDE antenna to buy -- I'm not a fan of the candy bar that came with the kit. Question: What would happen to the signal strength if I spray painted either the wall mount or ceiling mount antenna to match the decor? These antennas stick out like a "sore thumb"!

My guess is paint would not cause any degradation as long as it wasn't metallic. The WeBoost support staff are very helpful - give them a call and ask them.

My limited experience with the WeBoost systems indicate the larger antenna is much better.

Does anyone know what connectors I need to connect the Wilson400 Low Loss 20 foot cable to 1) The Surecall Omni Outdoor Antenna, and 2) a connector for the Weboost Drive? The thick Low Loss Cable Male Connector is huge!
