I've installed this alarm in an enclosed aluminum trailer. All is working except I only have about 200' range. I. Ant put the antenna outside as it has the valet button and led so I know it's not waterproof. Is there one wire in that harness I can extend so to get better range? My other thought is cutting and extending the whole antenna assembly so I can't mount it in the plastic roof vent but is it OK to extend all those wires?

If anything I'd extend all the wires. I've never had to do this, but I don't see why see why it wouldn't work. The antenna itself is what receives and translates the RF signal and the wires that connect from the brain to the antenna are just travelers. Just make sure you solder your connections and heat shrink if you have something that small otherwise 3M super 33+ will work good for this application. This will prevent any unwanted added resistance to the circuit.
I drink current, eat ohms, and bleed voltage
