Help adding Sirius/XM

Hi,
Just purchased a 2015 Greyhawk 31DS. I purchased a satellite tuner but can't find any matching plug hanging behind the radio. The OEM unit is a Jensen Sirius/XM ready. Can anyone tell me; Do I have to remove the entire radio? If so how do I do that?
Ford E-450 chassis. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

I would suggest you go on the internet to the Jenson site and find the pdf file for your radio. The satelite module probably plugs into the rear of the radio. The pdf file will also show you how to release the latches holding the radio. If a plastic bag containing the paperwork to your radio is in with all the other paperwork to your rv you might find 2 large flat grey metal key-like devices. If so, these slide in on the right and left sides of the radio to release the interior latches. If there is an owners manual with these keys it will be the same as the online pdf file for your model radio. It should have the procedure with illustrations on how to remove the radio. If not you may have to contact Jenson.

If this is a bluetooth radio you may want to consider getting an iphone to pair with it. That will give you a hands free phone service and access to Pandora radio. IMO, Pandora is more flexible than satelite with no monthly charges.

If you still have problems, post the model number of the radio and I will look it up for you.

jeffdee,
Thank you very much. After reading your post I searched the rig and found a box containing misc. parts and the removal tools you mentioned. The radio turns out to be a Jensen JRV215N. There was no model number on the OEM radio and trying to search the web was becoming difficult.
Thanks again,
Bob

This is the link to the online manual at Jenson. Page 8 shows you how to remove the unit. Page 9 shows you where to plug in the sat module. Page 29 show you how to pair to a bluetooth smart phone.

The manual looks to have all the detail you need.

Good luck...

Here is what I did for XM radio at the campground, I bought a Roady XLT that I keep in my truck, this radio has an fm transmitter built into the receiver, when I want to listen to it I just tune a different radio to the frequency that I have setup on the Roady, works great and I only have one bill

Jayco made the worst upgrade with this 'Jensen' radio...nothing but problems. Everything from the Bluetooth, to the radio cutting out whenever I use the turn signals. I rather have a stock radio. Even changing radio stations is cumbersome.

most after market xm radios have an auxiliary jack just plug into aux in jack, also onyk can be received by using a blank fm station, as far as the antenna i use a trucker mirror mount that i bought at amazon, really no need to take radio out, must of the jensen stuff is very difficult to work with not real reliable

I agree. Ours turns off the radio audio when in rear camera mode and using turn signals. Have to reset rear camera audio each time turn signal camera shuts off.
I did end up using the aux input for the sat. radio add on.
