TV Antenna Coax

Does anyone know the quality level of the coax used from the Winegard Roadstar antenna on late model AS?

In case anyone needs this answered Airstream advised the coax used is RG6.

I do RF - Radio Frequency work building , repair , so have direct experience .
Like anything else , finding known suppliers to maintain quality .
This is just one known good supplier , there are a bunch .
http://www.thewireman.com/products.html#coax
That depends , RG 6 or rg 59 or anything is a general term that has a wide verity of variables - some general dimensions to give a little of standardization .
The part that makes the most difference is who manufactured it , some cheap , some good .
RG6 is spouse to be better than RG59 .
Forums are good for opinions [ right or wrong ] incomplete & wrong info , being high percentage of .
Just saying , a simple question is better done using google , or your favorite engine .

Thanks, well aware of various coax qualities but pretty hard to identify the cable in the AS when it is buried between the skins. I relied on the builder to tell me what it is as I didn't get any response from the forum and had nothing else to go on. Was hoping that someone on the forum was lucky enough to have the markings visible on the exposed ends and noted it.
