Is there a way I can transmit the radio a short distance and listen my XM radio in my house?
I think I have read about a gizmo, I can plug in the cigarette lighter.
Tune it XM, and hear on a particular radio frequency in my house?

PS. I really like XM Old Time Radio. And this is what I am mainly interested in.

I suggest you contact XM. I heard an ad (but wasn't really listening) that talked about playing your XM radio anywhere, in your house, on your computer. etc.

Transmit from what to what? Most vehicle entertainment systems do not allow their devices to be networked with others by means of the Bluetooth connection used for phone or reception. So you can listen to your music on your phone for example but you cant send music from your vehicle to your phone or your house for that matter. I have experimented with some earpiece transmit/receiver devices that plug into a 3.5 mm socket attached to the vehicle unit but the range is very short - maybe 10 feet in a straight unrestricted line. Its also virtually impossible to configure the vehicle system to see that output when set to anything but the phone. I believe this is a FCC restriction in the US.

I want to transmit from my radio in the motor home to a amfm radio in the house.
10 feet transmission distance would be OK for me.

There may be something out there that once would have been sold by Radio Shack but today if its not BY enabled for broadcast its prohibited by the FCC. You could get your cell phone enabled for XM (more $$) and then plug your cell phone into the AM/FM or get a BT enabled speaker or one of those robo speaker devices like Alexa.
