Radio poor reception

Hello everyone. I have a 2016 Rezerve 32BS. I'm having an issue with the radio bringing in FM stations. I don't see an external antenna, and it is attached to a coax behind the radio. Any thoughts? Is it wired to the tv antenna? Tried with the antenna up and tried turning the antenna but still no difference. It has the Jensen Linear Series radio in it. Thanks for any help.

Booster switch is same one that is used for the TV antenna. It’s either behind the TV or in the bedroom on the ceiling; usually!

Not sure of your location, but in our Saskatchewan location, radio reception is hit and miss, but more often than not a miss. The truck radio will get limited channels but the RV is pathetic. Actually most time its a USB flash drive with tunes, and check in the truck for weather.

Manitoba is the same but it seems we can get CBC radio anywhere. Not that we listen to that lol.

My truck picks up all kinds of stations. We are only out of big cities like Lafayette and South Bend by 15-20 miles. If I do pick up a station in the trailer, it is very statically. That's why I'm wondering where the antenna is, or if it's in the TV antenna.

Mlne has a separate radio antenna mounted on the roof, similar to an auto antenna

the booster switch for the TV actually boosts radio signal as well.
