Antenna

On our '15 GH FK we have what looks like a satelite antenna at the edge of the windshield. Does anyone know if this is for Sirius radio or is this for the 'high quality' GPS in our Clarion radio.

No expert here, but I doubt that it would be for Sirius.. The ones I have ever seen were made to rotate to find the strongest signal. This looks stationary which could be GPS.
Do you have a antenna connection anywhere that you can find?

It looks "dealer installed" so you may want to ask them.

My new 31fs has the same thing on the dash. This may infact be the XM/Sirius antenna. When I installed the old XM unit in my jeep it had a similar antenna.

When we get our unit back from Ford due to an airbag warning light, we can look at it more.

X3 GPS. The clarion requires about a $300 unit in order to use the SAT radio function. Not included with your five figure RV purchase.
