I have a 2008 GMC Truck XM works great untill I put my camper on the truck, then it partialy blocks the sat signal, unless headed in a southerly direction. Is there a way to boost reception or a camper antena mount avaiable?

I have a 2008 Sonata with satellite radio issues also. Everytime it rains and I have to do any traveling in it, the storage box located in the trunk floods and shorts out the receiver,LIKE OVER THE WEEKEND!!. This will be the fourth replacement and they (Dealership)still cannot fix the problem.
I had the same issue. I called XM multiple time to have the signal resent. I told them I was receiving the preview channels and nothing else. I asked them multiple times if it could be hardware issue and they said no. I took it to the dealer and they ran a test ($98) and determined that the unit had failed. They didn't charge me for the $800 unit, but they did charge me $300 for the installation. Its working fine now.
First of all what kind of truck is it? Where is it grounded? Is the radio mounted directly to the car's chassis or is it suspended in a dash kit? What other aftermarket products are installed in the truck?
You can test for radiated noise too...turn on the ignition and bring a portable radio into the car, see if it has the same interference.
