Gary and Art, thanks for the update. I'm using weBoost 4gx. I'm expecting that the external truckers antenna is going to be fine outside, but as long as I'm upgrading the whole cell signal process if I can significantly improve the internal signal I'm interested.

Jerry

Jerry,
The 4 gx is designed to have the outside antenna mounted over metal and away from windows, the inside antenna is a no gain antenna that requires you be no more than 36 inches from it in order to work.
By regulation the company supplies the antennas and cable to control what the booster puts out for power to both antennas.
On a MH a lot of what is required is not present but in most cases can be over come to a point.
I suggest replacing the inside antenna with a interior wall mount panel antenna with the front facing away from the outside antenna area and as far as reasonable away from the outside antenna. I also would put the booster in a well vented area as they do run warm and is strongly suggested in the instructions.
The booster by regulation will check for interference and adjust it's power down until
it can work and if it can not it will shut that band off until you reset it.
A reduction in operation power will effect what the range is and/or how close you
have to be to the inside antenna.
I just finished updating my MH with the same unit and mounted the antenna at the rear and installed the inside antenna and booster a little over half way towards the front with extra shielding and it work great for the front of the coach.
Hope this information helps without getting to far into the weeds for you.

Jerry,
As a side note do not use that small feed line for more than 12 foot run as it has very hight losses at cell freq's
