Before you try to activate it, you should probably check to see if your trailer has an antenna for it.

I believe it's either channel zero or channel one on an XM radio that will display the radio ID of the unit itself.

I would also like to have XM Serius in my FC also.
The question is: Do I need to install a separate receiver and antennae in it?
Or can I use that 'idiotic garbage' (Farenheit??) Receiver that Airstream gave us?

I was left with the impression that you need an xm/sirius device to plug into the radio to activate it. I have read the instructions and they seem to be poorly written. I admit I am a bit of a speed reader though.

You will have to purchase a SiriusXM receiver and antenna.
Your stereo in your trailer is "Satellite radio ready", meaning the SiriusXM receiver and antenna are "plug 'n' play".
Then, once your SiusXM receiver and antenna are installed you will go to channel 1 to get the radio ID.

Welll, you have buy an additional subscription for a second device from sirius. I was quoted 5$/mo. Then you have to buy and install a sxv200 or 300 connect vehical tuner. I tried to install and gave up. I think the connector for. The sxv300 is not compaatable with the plug attached to my Clarion M303. I could be wrong but I gave up trying to be houdini

If the head unit is a Clarion, you must get a Clarion specific SiriusXM receiver.
Then it will be plug 'n' play.
Sony for Sony, Kenwood for Kenwood, etc.
Once the hide-away receiver is connected, the SiriusXM features will be accessible with the radio ID on channel one or simply the first channel showing Radio ID on the screen.
This is of course if the stereo head unit is "satellite radio ready".

We are fortunate to have unlimited data on our phones, so we subscribe to the XM radio internet stream ($3 mo) and play it through the Clarion via Bluetooth. Joe

You know, I just had a sudden thought about this:
Instead of asking the members of a travel trailer forum about the radio in your truck, maybe you could try asking the question in a forum for the appropriate truck. We are all giving you answers regarding trailers and motorhomes, without you even bothering to tell us what brand of truck! How are we supposed to know?

The OP clearly posted that he wanted to activate the XM in his 2016 AS FC. The way to achieve this is as m.hony stated in post #9. I hope the rest of your 19,000 plus posts are a little more welcoming to a new member.
