In Dash Radio On Diesel Pusherin dash radio fix or replace
Posted 27 October 2012 - 12:26 PM
We need to replace it and don't know if we should go with another Jensen since this one failed or get a different brand.
Has anyone had any problems with their in dash radio/CD/weather station?
If so how did you solve it or what did you replace it with?

I started shopping and the Important Requirements were that any replacement radio had to be "Tuneable" with a remote (no more reaching -- we both would get a remote), Large Display, Bluetoothable for cell phone connection, and fully integrated with a Sirius Hide-a-way tuner.
I got from Fleabay a Pioneer FH-8000BT Radio that fitted the requirements above, had it installed with a new integrated Sirius Tuner. I was a bit worried about whether or not I should also get/install an external antenna for the Sirius side of the setup. But I read somewhere that I could use the antenna that came with the Sirius Tuner and mount it above the entertainment cabinet near my fiberglass roof on the coach getting the signal through that roof. The installer was a bit skeptical whether or not I would even get a signal through the roof. He had the new Radio & Sirius all installed and the only thing remaining was to test the Sirius antenna. Well, he started by getting up (standing) on my pilot seat with the antenna in hand and didn't even get it up as high as the bottom of the cabinet when the satellite signal came in loud and clear. That antenna puck is now installed via double side sticky tape on top of the entertainment cabinet out of any weather with no hole drilling in the coach.
