RTI Antenna location

Hello all, I have a 2007 Magna Van Gogh, and am attempting to locate the antenna for the RTI home automation system. Does anyone know the location and how to access?

Thanks, John

My wiring diagram says one in the front overhead and a second over the bedroom overhead.

Thanks, sorry for slow response. On the road in Canada, with limited wife access. I have my wiring diagrams at home. I will look overhead behind the TV next. Appreciate the help.

John.

Yes I do, but it is true, I do have limited wife access these days!

I am now home from Canada, and started yesterday on coach issues, one of which is the RTI Antenna. Mine is not located in the PS side overhead console where the RTI RP-6 processor is located. My schematic shows one antenna as part of the system, and recommends for best results locate in the middle of the coach and away from any 120 volt source. In tracing the wire for the antenna, it travels into the Audio Visual cabinet, and then up above the roof. I gained access to the rear of all the consoles up in the front of the coach, to no avail, but will continue my search.

It was described by RTI technical support as about the size of a pack of cigarettes. See attached for schematic. I will try to track down some other support people.

Once again, thank you, and any help would be appreciated.

John.

Ok, today I spoke with a gentlemen from Northside Electric in Salem, Or and they do the RTI work for Oregon Motor Coach. He stated that the antennas are buried somewhere in the roof structure above the ceiling treatment. He simply places a new antenna in the PS console, and has had good luck with placing them there. My coach is 42, so I am hoping that the signal will be strong enough.

John.
