New to Jayco and Rving

I had a question about the satellite radio hook up in my Greyhawk. The manual said that I needed a specific tuner from Sirius. After calling Sirius I found out that they no longer make that tuner and none were available. Has anyone else contacted Jayco about this issue?

Welcome to the forum. I'm new too. I have a 2014 Melbourne with the Clarion radio. The Sirius tuner needed to connect to the Clarion radio is no longer availableas you discovered. The Clarion is also HD radio ready but that tuner is also obsolete. I just replaced my Clarion with an Alpine that has HD radio built in and the Sirius tuner is readily available.

Call Jayco, they may replace your radio.

follow-up

It is back at CW for some more punch list warranty repairs and the radio has been a major issue. It can't receive any radio station at my house, which is in a suburb of Atlanta where we get dozens of channels. The DVD player won't show a DVD on the TV's, even though I can hear it playing over the speakers. The Sat radio issue described above. The sound, when playing a CD, fades in and out randomly. It is just a lemon in my mind, until someone shows me how to do all the things it is supposed to do and proves that I'm not doing something right.

jvteach77.......I have had some luck with operating the DVD player. TV remote on..input on AV....insert DVD...DASH RADIO REMOTE...press NAV/AV button, press "enter"...use the touch screen or radio remote to control mute, open, ff, etc.
We are old school so we are content with AM/FM and CDs for audio entertainment. I agree Jayco did not put a lot of testing into this set up to make it easy and user friendly.
Keep updating the thread so we can learn from your experience.
Thanks,
Darrell

I was able to get the receiver from a custom sterio shop in my area last year. I was told that it was no longer available also. I would get a Sirius auto receiver that will plug into the small plug on the front of your Clarion and when you are not using the motor home take it into the house and plug it in your sterio. The am /fm radio sucks, I can't get much either. when I put my receiver in last year, I just laid the antenna on the dash and it works pretty good. The antenna for the GPS is just laying on the dash and that receives ok. Lots of luck, I know that it is frustrating after spending so much on a unit. My DVD works good, the volume is adjusted from the radio, I use the remote to control mine.

Bulldog, you helped me before so I'm back seeking help once again.Jayco Greyhawk 31SF 2015. Messing around with RV while in Storage Lot.
Came across a few issues; All 12 Volt plugs no PWR- checked fuses and Breaker
No PWR to Microwave - checked fuses and Breaker
No PWR in Rear Bedroom TV -checked fuses and Breaker
Ford In Cab lights on Drives & Pass side will not turn off, had to remove bulbs so not to drain Batt.
Ford Entertainment system - Radio Vol knob, will not increase VOL, while turning to increase VOL, the VOL Decreases, turning either direction will only decrease VOL.
the only way to Increase VOL is to use Remote.
Blue tooth does not pair up with phones, but will pair up with my I-Pad.
Sirus Radio - doesn't work, No Sirus ID#, I called up Sirus, they said should have a Sirus ID#, since I get 6 months free Sirus.
CD player works - but again same VOL problem
DVD works - but same VOL problem
Can you shed light on any of these issues.
I'm planning to take back to the dealership

Update

After much back and forth from us to the dealer (CW), Jayco, and Clarion we are getting a new radio. Jayco said they don't do radios and referred us to Clarion. Clarion said they don't replace radios just b/c the part needed to make the Satellite radio is no longer available. The problem is that the satellite radio is only 1 of several things wrong with the radio. CW took the radio out and hooked up a different radio and it picked up AM/FM in the RV fine. They then hook up a different antenna to my radio and they got the same static, so they are replacing the radio as defective. I've been told that we'll get an updated radio that does not need the Satellite tuner to receive the satellite signal. We'll see when we pick it up in a couple weeks, I guess.

jvteach77.thanks for updating on your project. When they conclude that you are not going to go away, they find a way to make things happen. It is obvious the points of inspection are very lenient.
Once received and installed, update us again.

I'm having problems with my Clarion radio as well, No Sirus Radio and the radio volume knob only lowers the volume no matter which way I turn the knob. I have to use the remote to turn up the volume. I have an appointment with C/W to turn in my Jayco Greyhawk. Hopefully, they will replace radio. Thank you jvtech77 for your comments.
