CB Antenna & Cable Replacement

Need some ideas I'm replacing my defective factory installed CB antenna & cable which is above the drivers door. I'm using a 2' Firestik with new dedicated cable. I have to give it to Newmar for the way they put these together. Iīm having trouble fishing the new cable it all runs up the drivers post along with all the other wires. Has anyone else done this job. I have all the trim off and now thinking about getting into the corner of the ceiling. The old cable will not pull either way I believe it's fastened up in the ceiling. So any ideas are appreciated.. Thanks, Jim

I thought about doing mine also but after looking at the wiring bundle in the driver post I decided it was best to wait until someone else does it and elaborates on it.

The factory techs may know a way to run the wire the same way the factory did it. However, I have taken the factory tour many times and have seen how the wire is run. You can not do this. Consider installing the antenna in a new location utilizing the post you have disassembled. Go to
CB Antenna - 3' Firestick No Ground Plane Needed - iRV2.com RV Photo Gallery
to see what I did.

Gary, did you have an OEM antennae? My OEM antennae is located above the door so I'll have to leave the the old mount with the old antennae or fill the hole.
You had room to install the mount in the post? I like the look of your mount, now you have me thinking.. Thanks for the info and pics.... Jim

If you look at this image the overhead fans and wiring is behind the plywood panel and a fish can be run over the overhead ceilng space to both sides of RV.
The fish can run by TV enclosure overhead and if your new holes are forward near the A channels both sides you can get both wires to under dash where CB will most likely be.
This link will show a ANT install both sides if you have twin ant's would be in same positions which wires can be reached thru the fan opening.
Be careful of sharp edges on fan housing there are sharp.
