Sirius radio install

I have a 2021 surveyor legend with a stock Furion. No built in satellite antennae. My tow vehicle is hooked up to Sirius and I have a subscription. I want a portable option to listen to XM in my tt. I figure a portable docking station and aux cord plugged into the furion would do it. Has anyone tried this? Options?

Your subscription should include the Siruis/XM App for listening anywhere. Does the Furion have Bluetooth? Or barring that, could you connect your phone to the Furion and stream the app through it? I think this would be much easier and definitely much cheaper than having a separate plan for the camper.

Yes, I have done that and it works where there is internet service. I would like to use the satelite when internet is not an option

Go to the Sirius website they sell portable units there. I get emails for them all the time usually at a discounted price.

Why pay for another $200+ a year subscription, for another radio? As long as you have phone service, the app works well and does not use a huge amount of data..

And if the area has lots of trees then no satellite service.

We use a portable Sirius XM radio with docking station and antenna in our TT. The audio cord can be plugged into the aux. on front of the Furion and the antenna placed in the closest window. This set-up has worked very well for us even with trees around. Because the radio is a separate unit there is an additional fee of $5ish/month. We purchased the unit, which came with everything needed, on Offer-Up for $50. Hope this helps.

Yup…us too.
A docking station in the motorhome, one of the cars and a docking station in the house. We can listen to SiriusXM anytime, anywhere.

Same here. We carry a Bose Sound Link speaker and as long as I have cell service, we're good to go.

I also downloaded the Radio Garden App. You can listen to any radio station in the world. I like it because I can listen to my local radio station from home to get caught up on anything local I may need to know. It uses very little data.
