Weboost Antenna Ideas?

Hey, was looking at adding a weboost to my FC, and was thinking it would be really nice if I could find a telescoping pole that fit inside the LP Gas tank cover, so I could just pop the cover and extend it up when parked and pull it back down and store it when not in use inside the cover? Thoughts? Been searching AMAZON trying to find a pole short enough to fit inside the cover but haven't seen anything yet I'd consider to be sturdy enough looking to hold the antenna...

TIA...
Eric

I canít help you there but my plan is to use one of the portable flag poles and a flag pole holder that is meant to go under a vehicle tire. I currently place it under my front Jack to hold it down. Your antenna wires can be coiled and stored in the battery compartment.

I use a suction cup on the outside to hold an antenna. It’s easy to take down and put up.

Run the wires through the storage access and up through the bed where I can connect the weboost on the inside.

It doesn’t cost much and is easy to store.

Mine is permanently mounted at the rear of the trailer on a piece of 1Ĺ" wide aluminum bar that puts the antenna above the A/C unit. Aluminum bar is glued to the roof (VHB tape under it and Eternabond tape over it)and antenna cable runs in and out the grey water vent to the WeBoost amplifier mounted in the closet through which the vent pipe runs.

Antenna raises the height of the trailer about 10" above what it was, but the aluminum bar will bend down if I accidentally hit a tree limb pulling into a camp site.

I saw a Weboost pole for sale in the classified section.

What about an omni directional antenna mounted on the roof? We have one and it works well and I never have to set up. It doesn't increase the height limit of our trailer - it is about the same height as the AC. We have it at the front opposite end of the trailer from the rear internal antenna and the AC doesn't block its path. We have been many places with weak or no signals unboosted and have always been able to stream etc.
