Terrible radio reception

Looking for help or suggestions on improving AM/FM radio reception in my 29HFS. I replaced the factory DUAL brand unit with higher end Bluetooth Pioneer but the reception is still terrible. I get many stations in crystal clear in my truck parked next to my unit but the signal strength of the trailer radio is about 1/4 as good.
Any suggestions or ideas my fellow XLR owners?

Do you have LED lights? I've heard about interference from those.

Mines pretty poor also . who knows what's going on there may not even be a antenna wire connected to the roof mount antenna . my guess would be to start there and then add a antenna booster

I had the same problem, I bought an adaptor and run the antenna thru the TV antenna with the booster on, I can pull in stations from 2 hours away
