Factory Installed Problem

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 the same problem when I put my Lance camper on my 08 GMC. I am looking into putting an XM antena on the top of the camper and an additional plug in the bed of the truck from the existing XM radio to the new antena. I haven't heard of anything better at this point.

You would need to add a different xm antenna. I believe the plug in is the sam on them like one for an add on xm radio could mount it on hood maybe so you would not have to mess with again.

I wired a roadie xt on my ultra classis and it cuts out/no signal often. Will wiring it to the back antenna in addition to connecting to the receiver help or solve the problem?


The antenna has to be completely visible to the sky. We haqd the same thing happen. Installed it on the trunk lid and it works great.

XM Loading Problem for Volkswagen


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.

Vr500csbt audio noise high pitched on most radio stations


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.
