I was able to make connections behind the TV in the 26U. The TV has RCA cables running to the Clarion radio using the AUX setting. I unplugged the TV from the RCA cables and using pass through connectors, added a stereo out/RCA cable from the Sirius radio....a separate purchase....I now have music from all AS speakers using the AUX on the Clarion radio. TV sound only comes from the TV speakers....a switcher box would take care of that if you want TV sound through the AS speakers.
Used double sided tape to attach the Sirius base to the AS wall. Radio slides in or lifts off as needed.
The Sirius power adapter in the vehicle kit is the cigarette style of plug...late model ASs don't have an outlet for it. So, I purchased a 5V USB power cord that fits late model Sirius radios. Plugged that into a 110/USB adapter you can get for phones. Works when plugged into shore power or when inverter is on.
I was able to run the antenna wire along the bathroom wall at the roof line....tucked in nicely...95% hidden. Then ended up at the skylight. Used double sided tape to attach the antenna head right at the top of the skylight. Get full set of bars for a signal. Haven't parked under trees yet, but it works really well in the open spaces.
