Ok guys or gals I have a very simple solution. Open your front window and loosen the screws on the left or right of the screen. Use the vehicle satellite antenna radio antenna (the magnetized one), and run the wire Though the bottom corner of the window into the screen molding. Run it up inside the screen molding to the top, below the overhead cabinet which is where your radio should be. You can drill a small interior hole or just remove the reading light and go up through there into a hole inside the cabinet. Run to the stereo, install your radio mounting bracket there (power hooked up to the stereo there) and an FM modulator between your antenna plug and your stereo. Power up and you are ready to go!!! It plays through your FM stereo on the channel you select in the unit.

Antenna Placement for XM Radio

I installed my XM radio antenna a couple of years ago without any drilling in the outer skin of our 2005 31 Classic. I concealed the small XM antenna under the frame inside of the front skylight and ran the wires underneath the trim strip that runs completely across the top of the interior and then down to a location outside of the front kitchen cabinent where I mounted the XM automotive mount. The power cord was attached inside the cabinent bottom to a power line for the kitchen under cabinent light. The unit then sends the signal to my factory installed radio via an unused FM frequency and we have full-time XM with no exposed wires and great reception just about every where we go with the possible exception of a dense overhead woods. It works great. Hope this helps.
