If my post came off as snarky, I apologize for it. That was not my intent. Sometimes, we say things in our head that sound ok but when read by strangers, they sound much worse.

We had a 24.1 with Bigfoot levelers AND factory stabilizers. The difference between going without stabilizers and using them is night and day. While the levelers make sure that things are balanced,...

First of all, incredible job, gte! I had a 24.1 until last year and faced the same dilemma. I now have a 37' Fleetwood that doesn't have that issue, so it became moot.

As for others, they don't...

You are correct. I was under the impression that he already had a Sirius/XM radio hooked up, whether part of the HU or as an add on. If he doesn't have that, no sense in looking for an antenna! :)

Don't know if you have much access to the back of the head unit or not. Satellite antennas are (maybe) a 2" square with about 20 feet of very thin wire. If the installer simply plugged in the...
