Question SiriusXM install on 2016 Precept 31UL

Has anyone installed SiriusXM radio on their 31UL Precept? The radio is a Jensen JRV215N and is "SiriusXM Ready". What tuner did you buy and where did you put the antenna? Any install issues that I need to be aware of?

We just bought a '16 Precept 31UL last month and bought the SiriusXM Tuner for ours - the model number is: SXV300. Got it at Best Buy but any electronics retailer, (or Amazon), is sure to have them and should be around $50. The Tuner plugs into the back of the Jensen JRV215N with a special plug, (supplied), and then we ran the antenna up on top of the dash, almost directly in front of where driver sits. We just ran the antenna cable under the dash then up the side and over to where the antenna can 'see' the satellite.
Hope that helps, and enjoy that 31UL!

We have the 2015 31ul with same Jensen radio. Purchase tuner at BestBuy and had dealer install for us. Antenna was permanently installed on roof. Works great.

Have you had any problems receiving a sat signal with the location on the dash?

I need to update my post about placing the SiriusXM antenna on the dash - we just took our first big trip and having the antenna on dash didn't work as planned. We're now going to get the antenna mounted on the roof. We found that when driving south & east it worked fine but when traveling north, the radio would lose the signal occasionally. Pardon the wrong/rookie advice and get your antenna mounted on the roof.

I also purchased the SVX300 and initially placed the antenna on the dash. Travelling north, no signal at all.
I then routed the cable up the driver side door molding, and up the inside wall, placing the antenna on a magnetic plate stuck to the interior ceiling. No drilling to the exterior, and it works perefectly.

Did you provide the magnetic plate? I looked up and could see where the cable could be routed but no access to the roof without removing the A pillar molding.
Did you just place the antenna between the coach ceiling and roof? I'm trying to visualize this in my mind.

Right now my antenna is lying on the dash near the base of the windshield and probably have coverage 70 to 80% of the time.
