What sort of connector is this?

    I have this connector on the 2016 Mack Pinnicle I recently bought. The cable looks like it should connect to the base of a CB antenna. It's on the driver side mirror where you would expect the coax connector to be. But I can't identify it or find an adapter for it. There are no threads.

    Does anyone know what it would be?

    If you have an ohm meter and a long jumper wire, you can at least trace what the coax connects to. That should give you a big clue as to what it's purpose is.

    Thanks. I thought so too and tried a BNC to UHF adapter, but it didn't fit. When the weather warms up I might try to tear things apart and see what's up. I have a few other things that are a higher priority for me though.
