Sirius Radio

I just purchased a 2006 winnie adventurer 38P. I see the radio is Sirius capable and the antenna for it is installed on the room. Where does the other end of that antenna go to? I have pulled the radio and it is not in the back of there. I see that there may be a sirius tuner M9SIR needed or already installed where I suspect the antenna goes to. Bottom Line, I need to know where the end of the antenna cable goes to inside the coach. Thanks everyone for your help..charlie

HI
I would contact Winnebago at their 800-537-1885 number and they will tell you all about your rig.

THe tuner may just plug into the existing radio, however there will have to be a separate antenna to pick up the satellite.

Good Luck

I'm not electronically smart but I do have a Sirius set up. The antenna comes from the roof and is plugged into an auxilliary wire that goes into your radio. If you are able to lift up your dash, you should see the cable/wire hanging from your radio. If the antenna is not already plugged in to it, you may not have the cable/wire. I think you can go to the Sirius site and they have a forum there. Just ask you questions and I'm sure someone can help.

You may have a seperate Siruis tuner under the dash on the firewall. It will have the Sirius name on it.

Is the existing satelite antenna for a Sirius radio or for a GPS unit. When Monaco put the Sirius radios it and a fairly large round antenna on the roof and had Sirius written on it. Then they had a small square flat antenna close to the roof up front that was for GPS. What does your antenna look like?

I just replaced a defective Magnadyne Sirius radio. There is a standard antenna connection and a Sirius connection that goes to the SiriusConnect device that is mounted on the firewall near the inside fuse compartment. The connection from the SiriusConnect tuner to the radio is a multiple-pin connection as opposed to the single bayonet connection for the standard antenna.

The Sirius roof antenna is a small rectangular device about half the size of a can of shoe polish paste and it is located just behind the front cap of the coach.

Attached is a picture of the two antennas that are available. I guess yours is the smaller one on the right which is like my Kenwood GPS antenna. Monaco used the larger one on the left on MHs.

The one on the right is similar to the one on my 2007 Adventurer 38 J.

Hi cnjcampione,
Welcome to iRV2. The comment "Sirius capable" tells me you do not have the Sirius radio tuner. The OP mentions the tuner that needs to be purchased. If you purchase the tuner, it should come with a cable to plug into your head unit. The antenna wire should then plug into the Sirius tuner.

However, make sure Winnie installed the Sirius antenna for you. Like posted earlier, this cold be for a GPS unit. Most of the time the plugs are fool proof. The work installing these units comes with the task of antenna installation.
