Original antenna wire routing?

Originally did this wire eventually ever come out into the interior of the trailer? I found what looks to be like a radio antenna wire on the right side of the front cabinet, but it doesn't match thickness/color. I would love to attach some coax to this wire an pull it through to the inside of the trailer.

Any help is appreciated.

Apologies this is the water pump wiring on the street side of the trailer, I meant to take a photo of the other side. I will update this evening.

I don't run a water pump or holding tank up in the front of trailer anymore, everything has been relocated to the rear.

Here are a couple of pictures of the antenna on the outside of the trailer. The antenna is original to the trailer. You can see the cord/wire going in.

I'll see if I can find the wire on the inside and get pictures there.

Antenna Wiring Pictures

Hi again!

I cleared out the overhead cabinet above the front window to get to the wiring (it needed to be cleaned out anyway) and have some more pictures.

I concluded that from where the antenna wire comes into the trailer and into the cabin, the wire appears to be threaded through the trailer wall just above the front window. The wire then comes into the overhead cabinet just above the corner of the window that is opposite where the wire went into the trailer.

I have pictures of where it comes in with the (I think original) radio moved out of the way and with the radio in place.

Happy wiring!

I made a small aluminum patch panel to cover the hole and installed an F-connector in place of the old 300-ohm twin lead connector. Inside I attached TV cable and ran it into an overhead cabinet where I can hook up my TV. Outside I can attach the antenna lead to the connector or if I'm at a campground with cable TV, I run a cable from the connector to the campground cable box.
