Default Antenna

Does anyone know the make of the radio antenna on the roof of the coach.

I have a 2008 Tour Master and the antenna on the passengers side came loose and fell off, the base of the antenna is OK but I need a replacement of the rubber antenna that mounts with a screw to the base.

Thank You,

I need to get the one for the CB as well. I've been told to try Radio Shack.

Well bad news. I got the part information from GS. 1) GS does not have any. 2) I called the company, River Park, that they sourced it from and they no longer have it nor can they even source it. So it looks like we are out of luck.

So, going to remove mine and Dicore the hole up (or just remove the antenna part) and put on a side mount antenna or look to just purchase a hand held CB. (I only use it when I am in a traffic jam and want to see what the truckers are saying.)

Sorry for the bad news.

If the antenna is the same on both sides, why can't you switch antenna's and add a radio antenna to the radio side.

I found an antenna at Wal Mart that had a similar rubber antenna but it had allen screws to apply it to the piece that the old antenna screwed on.

Just my thought

I replaced my antenna a few years ago with a Fire Stick model DS14-FG 'No Ground Plane' (NGP) CB Antenna Kit. It was a huge improvement to my CB performance.

Nice find!!! Will look into that one. Did you replace it in the same place? What about the cable?

Installed in the same place and you do run the new cable down the race way. Remove the cover for the race way and remove the old cable first. I believe I used a part of the old mount when I attached the new antenna to the roof. Use plenty of Dicor. You will need to remove the top material in the cabinet to get to the underside of the roof. Replace it when finished. You will figure it out.
