Radio reception

Has anyone successfully moved the radio antennae to actually get reception with their radio? We have a 2300 that the bunkhouse hangs over the radio antennae and reception is very poor. It does pick up stations but if you are over 30 Miles from the station, less on FM, you wonít be listening to that station very long. Iím considering taking it to a professional to have a decent radio and speakers installed because whatís in it is of very marginal quality at best.

It is easy enough to replace the speakers...one of the very first things I do when I get a new camper.

The outside antenna...not quite so easy.

My current 5'ver, the radio antenna was hooked up to the roof TV antenna, and not only didn't work, but was also shorting out the TV and cable signal to the TV in the living room.

Once I discovered the problem, which my dealership had no clue how to fix, I finally did it myself.

For now I have a marine/boat antenna inside the entertainment center and it is OK, but do plan on mounting an outside roof mount antenna.

Although, I may not bother as I hardly ever use the radio for anything other than running the TV sound through it.

I usually only listen to the radio when outside and I find my Sony boombox with built-in subwoofer much better than those cheezy Jensen marine speakers that come from the factory in RV's.

I look forward in seeing what replacement you select for the indash multi plex unit. We went with a marine XM antenna and are happy with the results. If I was staying with the over the air antenna I would still mount it over the door cabinet where I ran my xm wire..

Iím not sure I will replace it without relocating the antennae outside for better reception. We arenít in it enough to set up XM or I would do that as it already is setup for that. We bought a home in Florida so only plan on using it local not spending a lot of money on it. Iím still hoping someone has relocated the antennae and has a simple solution and place to put it. Under the bunkhouse just doesnít work.

Does that mean we won't see you in Casa Grande this winter? Good luck with the antenna.

Iím afraid not. It was nice there but got too cold in the evenings for my asthma. Probably be much better in the fall and spring but we ran into friends in Florida and a very nice place that was affordable so we went for it. Thanks for your help while we were there.
