Sirius XM antenna

The coach had one of the standard puck type satellite radio antenna's with the cable run under the dash and then up the A pillar and out the door to the top. The wire coming out of the door was glued to the side and really looked messy. The antenna is not working now and I think it finally was cut from opening and closing the door on the thin wires. So I want to install a good quality Marine type satellite radio antenna such as the one below and come down with the cable in the front dome then run down the A pillar to the dash. Of course ample silicone will be applied at the hole in the top. Anyone done anything along thgis line to your Motorhome, thanks.

I have just purchased an XM antenna for my mirror mount. Way too little, I put it inside the MoHo in the corner and got real good reception. Am going to mount it temporary in the corner and see it continues to preform. I too do not know how to snake the wire from roof? Must take out some cabinet work. Let me know how you are coming along.

Don,
The Shakespeare antenna looks like a good choice. You need to see what kind of mating connector it requires and if that's compatible with your XM Sirius receiver. Also, you will need to cut a hole through the roof large enough to accommodate the connector. Do you have a specific question that your are asking about this installation?

Steve

I started thinking the same thing about the connector and if it is compatible with Sirius XM. But I did not think of that until I ordered it. I will check that out on Monday when it arrives. I can always return it it if it does not work with XM. My main install question was drilling a hole through the front roof cap. There is no other option to get the cable back inside that appeals to me. I will follow up once I check out the connector.

Thanks
