Replacing radio antenna

I picked up a new rubber antenna from wall-mart and was in the process of unscrewing the old broken antenna from the roof of the motorhome above the windshield when the antenna cable bolt inside the motorhome fell back into the hole and now I can not get to it. I looked in the cabinet above the dash on driver side but there is some kind of cardboard stopping me from getting to the antenna cable. Can this cardboard be removed to get to the cable so I can screw the antenna back on? I really rather not have to pay someone else to do this for me. Thanks

If it was installed it can be removed. My RV has cabinets with holes cut into the tope with covers that can be removed. Yours has to have some fasteners to remove. Get a flashlight and do some searching. I am with you, I hate to pay someone for something I should be able to do.

Getting there is half the fun - take your time and enjoy the scenery.

If I can not find a way to get to the antenna cable I will cut a hole just big enough for me to get my hand into and grab the antenna and stick it back up into the hole in the roof and have one of my friends or grandson etc. to screw the antenna back on. I will get it done one way or the other!! Rather it be one way.
