SiriusXM antenna location

I installed the SiriusXM receiver in my 2018 Sunseeker 2400W MBS. I currently have the antenna on the dash up by the windshield but the reception is terrible
Has anybody had any luck finding good location for the antenna?

I could be wrong but I think it uses a directional antenna. I have one at home and I put it on the roof.

SiriusXM antenna location

We have a REV and installed an Onyx radio in the cab, and placed the antenna inside in the cab-over. The REV has no bunk in the cab-over but instead a pair of cabinets, so we installed the antenna near the roof inside the cabinet. The fiberglass roof doesnít impede the signal and weíve had no problems when facing any direction.

You bet. Iím happy it worked since we didnít have to drill a hole and donít have a wire going out a door. We just have to keep a clear view of the southern sky when we camp and want music!! When camped we run the AUX cable to the outside speakers and works great.

satt radio

Mounted a marine grade (no ground plane) xm antenna on the roof directly above the entry door. Our coach has a cabinet over the door for the satt dish recv and tv connections. Ran the wire down and to the back of the dash.

We ran ours out through the slide and located it on top of the roof right behind the driver's side door. Secured it with Eternabond tape and it works perfectly.
