Pairing cell phone with Jenson radio

I have a 2017 Holiday Rambler Vacationer 35K, I am trying to pair my LG41C cell phone with the Jenson radio that is in the dash. For some reason I have not been able to get it to pair with . I do have the cell phone paired with the radio in my 2016 Equinox. When I do the search it will show the phone but not ableto get it to pair. The area I am in I do not get a very good ATT&T signal, could this be the reason.

I have tried all kinds of passwords. But still not able to get it to happen. I went into settings in the radio and put password to 000 and then when it asks for it on the cell phone I also put in 000 but nothing happens.
What am I doing wrong.

Signal strength of ATT should have no bearing. Both phone and radio must have Bluetooth turned on. Go to phone settings - Bluetooth and look for the stereo's name. Try 0-0-0-0 or 1-2-3-4 as a password. Some systems transmit a password and you respond on the other device with the password to link them. If all else fails, Google your radio instruction manual and/or phone manual.

A phone will only pair with one device at a time, if the Equinox is holding on to the Bluetooth pairing it will not allow you to join a different device until it disconnects from the car first.

Look at your list of Bluetooth devices and make sure none of them say "connected".

Not an accurate reply. Depending on the phone, it can link with as many devices as needed. My iPhone, can connect with my watch, my car, and anything else that is in range and turned on and it has permission to pair with.

Extremely inaccurate reply!

An Apple Watch uses Bluetooth-LE (low energy), not full-on Bluetooth. It can receive parallel notifications with a second Bluetooth device.

It doesn't matter who's device you are using though, Bluetooth protocol is the same, you can have ONE full function Bluetooth device connected at a time, it is NOT capable of multiplexing. You can not be listening to music on your Bluetooth headphones and have your car connected at the same time. It will drop one when you connect to the other.

Before focusing on Bluetooth linking more than one device at a time, do we know the OP is towing the Equinox behind the RV?

Also, all the replies by Bluetooth experts, no one mentioned the OP had only entered a three digit code. In my response and all Bluetooth connections I've made, it's always a 4 digit code.
