Winegard G3 Coax Cable?

I am looking to install a G3 on the roof of my Winnebago View. There is a coax cable already provided by WB inside the roof. Will that cable work or do I need to fish the Winegard cable in order for the power inserter to work?

Also I was wondering how big of a hole to drill in the roof to retrieve the existing cable.

I took out a manual Winegard Satellite antenna and re installed a Winegard G3 using the same Coax. works great and no problem. Had to plug hole from manual antenna and screw, seal installation of new one.

If your existing cables are either RG6u (best) or RG59u (good) and the connectors are the same, why go to the added time to install and expense for a name branded cable. There is an outside chance that it could be RG11u (very best)but that is way more expensive/foot then the other two and when every penny saved to an RV manufaturer is profit - doubtful

No idea what WB uses from the factory. My only concern is making sure there is nothing unique in the Winegard cable for the power injector.
