Jensen JRV9000 GPS and Sirius antenna install questions.

I am installing a Jensen JRV9000 stereo/navigation system w/Sirius XM in my 2013 Winnebago Aspect 27K. I am looking for the best way to wire and mount the GPS antenna and the Sirius WM antenna on the roof. Has anyone done this?

Welcome to the forum.

You are joining a good group of friends here with good information to share. Read the various threads here and ask questions as they come up or add information if you can. Some one should be along with an idea or two for you.

Good luck and enjoy the adventure!

I just had the GPS antenna installed on the dash in my 2015 Thor Vegas. The Audio Tech told me up front that installing the GPS antenna on the roof was a bad idea. Said it has been proven that the GPS antenna, which the manufacturer recommends roof mounting, will work loose and flap around before falling off. Instead he kept it inside and routed it under the dash to a point about 3 inches back of the windshield and a couple inches off the left side windhield pillar. Using industrial velcro it left a very neat and professional looking job.

I don't know what your antenna is like, but when I put a Sirius module on my old Magnadyne radio, I decided to mount the little puck antenna high inside the front cab.

I took a little metal mending bracket and bent it so it I could slip it between the ceiling and a front cabinet, so the magnetic puck antenna is right up against the ceiling. The roof is styrofoam and transparent to satellite signals. It came with a very long, small wire, which I was able to route down into the cab, over the passenger door molding, down the A pillar, and to the module below the dash.

My factory installed GPS antenna is inside on the passenger side dash and works fine. When my factory installed Sirius XM antenna stopped working, I replaced it by running the new antenna through the drivers side fender and sticking it (it's magnetic) to the hood. That has also been working fine though I've been thinking about moving it to a bracket mounted like tap4154 suggested.
