I did that has nothing to do with the radio and I don't see any link to posts 17 or 19. Can't figure this out either

However, this will not work for us because we use the BR & outside TV hookups.

I would be interested in a third party antenna solution - anyone out there seen or heard of one?

Just replace the existing splitter with one that has an additional output. WALA. Status quo on the existing system with an additional output for the radio.

My 8289ws radio reception is horrible to. My camper is brand new, don't FR test these things? Why would they keep using the same crappy antenna. My dealer is supposably working with FR for a solution.

Agreed. See previous post -RodeoGeorge has a good idea - perhaps your dealer could do that for you?

The TV antenna and amplifier will work on FM and possibly on Weather Radio at 162.4 mhz but AM will not work or very poorly. I have the same issue, I am looking for a larger AM compatible external antenna, lead in would have to kept short for AM to work. A regular rod style antenna without an amplifier is best.

Where i camp I get 1 station only of manually tuned and there is no TV whatsoever.

My radio reception is bad too. The tv reception is great. My dealer is replacing the antenna and the Genesis reliever. It's on order from FR. I will keep you posted.

Seems like the poor to no radio reception is a trademark for rockwood and genesis. Hope a new radio helps it didn't with mine.
