Wireless rearview camera - booster antenna installation advice
I'm looking for some advice from the engineers and/or budding McGuyvers'.
I need to install a small (approx 8") booster antenna for my rear view camera. The antenna I have been supplied from the camera dealer, has a magnetic base. Unfortunately, I don't have a metal surface on the roof of my 38FL on which to attach it. Has anyone else pondered this question and if so, how did you fix it?
I have thought of either a small steel plate that I could attach to the roof using industrial strength velcro and duck tape but I'm not sure if this would last the rigor of driving through rain, winds, etc. at 60mph without flying off.
Another fix I thought of was to attach a steel 'L' shaped bracket to the side or front of the rear A/C unit and mount the antenna on that. Again, not sure if that would last the test of time and road conditions?
If anyone has any tried and tested winning fixes for this and would be willing to share, I'd be happy to try it out.
