TV booster

http://continu.us/content/manuals/CO...500_Manual.pdf
I have a Sunset trail 2014 32rl my antenna quit working, was not sure what the problem was or where to look. I finally found a loose connection behind the booster panel and got the TV to pick up something. I was very pleased with myself. I get this bright idea before I put it all back together, I will make sure everything is really tight. Well you guessed it the wire snapped off. It is the connection from the wire to the roof and the booster box. (ant. in) Not much room to work with.
Any ideas if I could get some type of wire and connect the two?

Thanks, got a call into tech support. Not sure if it is a smaller wire inside a larger one or not.

I wouldn't recommend soldering antenna wire. It has a specific impedance to carry the signal. Find someone who has the proper tool and crimp a new coaxial connector onto the cable.

Good point. I forgot about those. There are twist-on style connectors you can use to replace an end.

Would the crimp style work?

Sure. You have to also buy the proper tool. Hence looking for the twist on.
