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 have a 2009 Dodge Ram pickup with factory sirius radio. When I put my cab over camper on it I lose the sirius radio signal. Is there a external antenna that will work with setup . I can mount it on top...


We had the same issue with our 2007 Dodge Ram truck. We use an external antenna when we have the camper on. You can buy these at various places on line. Get the car antenna not the home antenna. It magnetically mounts onto the truck so we put it on our hood and routed the antenna wire through the passenger side door. Our satellite box is behind the glove box. Remove the glove box and look up in the cavity. We were able to just unplug the factory antenna and plug the external antenna in. It's easy to switch back too. Just be careful with the antenna wire because it's fragile and any little bit of damage makes it useless.

Sirius radio with xm antenna


Not advised. They have different resistance and are set up for different Sat signals. Chances are you will decrease the life of your radio if you get a signal at all.

Sirius satellite radio


You will need to get another sat antenna, and locate it somewhere either above the camper, or where the camper does not obstruct the antenna. Any store that sells sat radio equipment (Fry's, Best Buy, etc) will have the micro antenna. Install it either on the hood of the truck, or on top of the camper. You will need to run the antenna to the rear of the dash. They make Y couplers that will allow you to run both the OEM antenna and the extermal antenna at the same time, and it will not hurt the system to have both wired in at the same time.
