I too have a 2860DS, I put a magnetic mounted antenna on the front fender, about half way to the front, no drop outs.

But installation instructions from sirus says it has to be on roof. Any advice, thanks
Roof installation is ideal but you might also consider purchasing a home kit with a portable antenna. They are more sensitive than the roof mounted variety and will acquire good signal strength inside the RV and through the roof. Yes, you read that correctly. We have an integrated XM receiver with a roof top antenna that can be problematic due the low look angle required in this part of the country. Any trees to the south and we have no signal. However, our Sirius radio on a portable dock and with a portable antenna pointed through the roof of the RV, works just fine.

I ran the antenna wire behind the door trim to the forward upper bunk area and used double back foam tape to attach it to the top of the TV. Works very well.

The antenna can also be place under the upper bunk mattress, all the way to the front.
