Wi Fi Antenna location

We have a 17 Hy Bird trailer. We are getting our camper ready to try out snowbird lifestyle this winter. One thing we are going to try to improve our Wi Fi.
Can some members tell me the best way to install our antenna. Today we noticed a suction cup to hold the antenna.
I do not know I am doing. The air conditioner replacement was easy. The water heater was very simple. Remodel the bathroom was hard work.
Please any help for a person that can not own a cell phone.

I saw somewhere that if you mount it on the TV antenna, it will fold down when you put your TV antenna down. I will look to see if I can find a link to post.

That would be good if I can. That way it will not be extended.

To place the antenna is what I need to do first. Then the wiring will be next. Last how to hook it up. I want to do my homework first.
This site has been a big help with my upgrades. The information I got about painting my bathroom was a big help with wonderful results.

You're going to have to give us more information, instead of making us play detective, dragging the information out of you.

What WiFi system are you taking about? What type of antenna? What type of wiring goes to it?....

Come on, help us. The forum doesn't charge by the word....

Wi Fi camp pro 2 system.
I can drill a hole for the wire.
I also read about a suction cup holder.
I am just starting to plan it now.

OK, now we have something to work with..

I don't have a Camp Pro, but a WeBoost, but they both need an antenna. I mounted my antenna on the fridge vent on the roof with a "L" shaped bracket that folds the antenna down on the roof when moving. I swing the antenna up when I use the system.

I ran the wire down through the space behind the fridge (under the fridge vent), because I didn't want to drill a hole in the roof. Then the cable comes out inside the upper cabinet in the kitchen area, where the other hardware resides...

Great idea RetiredOne.... I won't drill a hole in my roof either.

That will work putting the white down the fridge vent. The location of the inside hookup is on top of the fridge.
I was reading that I also need a repeater.
