We have a 2014 Starcraft 26BHS, and pretty much everything is great on it, except the radio reception. We go many of the same places we went with our old 06' Funfinder and while we used to get good radio reception in it, we get next to nothing on our Starcraft. Talked to the dealer, all they tell me is "Oh yeah, they put cheap antennas in these things, we can sell you a new one for $300". Last season I took a look at the wiring, and found out all the coax ends behind the radio weren't crimped - I could pull them right off. Had it in for service over the off season, and they're on tight now.
However, still very poor reception. We get TV and Radio fine in the city (which makes it hard to prove to the dealership how bad it is), but 45 min away, nothing but static. So I took a look at the wiring again. Here's a diagram of what I can see behind the stereo....
From what I can tell, the brown cable going into the roof goes to the bedroom (it's also a brown cable behind the faceplate). I don't know where the grey and black cables go though, one I assume is to the antenna.
The splitter - the IN goes into the radio.... is that ok? They're labeled 2 out , 1 in, but does it actually matter?
Any tips, or are the antennas really that bad?
