I feel that most people that go for this option would also appreciate the antenna placement closer to the front. Just my two cent worth. I don't like the idea of retrofitting the cable on the exterior of the roof to place this remote antenna. I would have rather pay for the prewire up front. How do I forward this to the company to consider this in all of the designs ?
You can buy an extender antenna, run it to the side of the camper so will have a clear line of site to the cab. You don't necessarily need it closer. The extender that was sent to me to make my rear cam ope-ratable had a 6 foot wire. The signal is so strong, it now interferes with the vehicles TPMS system.
. A matching antenna is used with the monitor. They have magnetic mounts for easy temporary attachment or you can epoxy.
