It should be coming down the driver's side windshile post to a point under the dash. May be in a wire bundle just above the steering column.

My CB cable was coiled up in the area under the shifter panel. Just another place to look.

Mine was neatly coiled and taped behind the drawers of the center console. The antennae connect was behind the console radio.

Ours was in the bundle of wire above the steering column accessed by removing the cover on the dash above the instrument panel. The power wires were white with black letter stenciling. They can be hard to find.

I looked for 2 hours and can't find them. Guess I need to keep looking. The antenna is there so there has to be a wire ...?

Yep, mine was on top of the steering column too on my '05. The antenna was so bad that I installed a Firestik brand 3 footer on the drivers side pillar and used it instead.....it helped a bit.

Glad the mystery was solved and since it is do you folks mind if I ask an off topic question?

My MH did not come with the CB prep. Would you recommend a rooftop or sidewall mounted antenna knowing how the factory ones work?

Back in the day of hi power CBs,they always worked better above the largest flat area we could get.This with 100 to 300 watt and a metal roof,it gave some kind of plane effect.If you only want short distant a good hand held moble might get the job done.
