XM Radio

I have a 2010 8316ss and it has the xm radio. I currently have xm in my truck and know how it works but not sure how it works in the trailer. What settings do you use?? Any help would be great!

Each radio has its own ID number that has to be activated. Is your truck a factory radio with XM or does it have a docking station? I switch my XM between my car and camper. but if yours is a factory XM in your truck then you will have to get the camper radio activated which will costs more money

The unit in my truck is different from the unit in the trailer. I am aware of the extra costs and still willing to proceed but am unsure how to get the unit ID number and what setting on the stereo to get the sound. The unit in my truck was far easier to learn than the trailer unit...

I think you go to station XM 1 for the ID. That is where it is on my car, which is a factory unit. But I think they are all the same.

I was lucky because the factory left the box the XM radio came in, so I just used the docking station from the box and put it in my car so the XM radio will fit in both camper and car, all I have to do is switch them out. and yes its station 1 for ID number. Its too bad you cant use same radio, its a shame to have to pay for 2 radio service

You need to call XM. They will activate it for you. The 2nd radio will be cheaper. My wife got XM first and when I got it in my truck, I got on the family plan and mine is cheaper. I have it on my computer as well. I think that is 2 bucks a month.

Here is the USA XM activation phone # - 1 800 967 2346, if you are in Canada it is: 1 877 438 9677. You will need the XM Radio ID number at hand to give them.

They are two radios.

You can listen to one in the truck and your DW can listen to the one in the car at the same time.

My issue was I had one Sirius and one XM. They would not allow me to combine subscriptions for the savings. Booo

On mine the radio ID displays as soon as I turn it on.

Playing the radio involves a combination of setting the stereo head unit to the correct band and setting the function switch on the wall plate to play XM radio.

I figured it out

by trial and error.

I taped the settings to the radio so I could remember what setting was the TV output and what was the XM output.
