2008 Scepters and Camelots had the antena cable curled up in the console under the transmission shift pad. Remove the access cover next to the seat and look carefully as there are many wiring harnesses in there. I found mine underneath a bundle of wires.

Actually, my CB is mounted on the shifter pad console, sideways.

Since the photo section is still under construction, PM me your email and I will send you a picture.

brunter......I found the coax easily enough, but couldn't find the power supply. On my coach (don't know about the newer ones) there is a panel on the dash above the instrument cluster. I removed the panel and finally found the wires there.

I had an old Cobra CB that I was going to mount in ours, but just couldn't find a spot that looked good and was accesible. I gave up and bought the the Cobra with everything built into the microphone. The radio unit mounts under the dash and out of the way. This radio performs well and has a "Scan" feature that the larger radios usually don't have. It also has a weather channel.

Here is a picture of how I installed the CB in our 2006 Diplomat:

Most likely the same way that Harry installed his.

Hi Bunter,
Mine is install the same as Bob's. One piece of advice do not expect to get good range from the factory installed antenna. Most CB antenna need a ground plane to get good reception and the factory one is on the roof with no connection to the metal frame of the coach.
Rather than spend a lot of time finding the coax I would go to a good CB shop and have them install a good antenna that is bolted to the A Pillar at the front of the driver window. The coax then can down to the shift console behind the covers over the A Pillar.
Hope this helps.
