. How can we rig up an external antenna? I've read and read, so far nothing I've seen gives me directions. If there is a thread I've missed please send info. Thanks. Jac
The television antenna and signal booster were options that weren't found on all coaches. On a coach not equipped with the option, there won't be any particular markings to indicate precisely where the antenna should be located. You coach would be from the time period when the switch was being made from a Skyliner antenna that mounted beside the front window utilizing a tube - - to the Skyliner that mounted on the roof and was controlled via a crank from inside the coach. I suspect that most of the 1969 coaches had the roof mounted Skyliner antennas. With the roof mounted antennas, the geography of the roof on your coach plays a big role in locating the antenna (especially on the smaller single axle coaches). In cases where the antenna is retrofitted, the wires for the antenna can either be "snaked" between the inner and outer skins - - or if the television is to be located near either the refrigerator or one of the through-roof plumbing vents the wires can be fished through one of these openings from the roof. My dealer installed the booster equipped Batwing antenna on my Minuet (it didn't have the factory antenna), and the wiring was "snaked" between the inner and outer skins to a point in the roof-locker above the refrigerator.
Good luck with your antenna installation research!
