No matter where I go, most of the time I only get 1 radio station. The radio is in my DVD player. I get all kinds of stations on my cab radio. Any fix?

You have a new 2018.  We have a 2007.  I do wonder if you have an am/fm antenna inside the cabinet above the unit like we do.  Our antenna resembles this.  If you have no such inside antenna, it could be that PC is hooking up the head unit to the roof-top digital antenna.  That would make more sense since they stopped installing the old crank-up antenna that we have.  There should be some kind of antenna connection on the back-side of your head unit.  Maybe it's there, you just need to plug it in.

Thanks Ron, I looked and no antenna in the cupboard. I pulled the Samsung dvd out and there is a cord hooked up to the antenna outlet, it runs over to a hole in the wall and from there I wouldn't know. I can get 1 station tonight, it's a good one, got lucky.

If it is connected to the TV antenna as Ron suggested, you might need to turn on the antenna booster in the electronics cupboard over the passenger seat.  Just a thought.

Apparently you are setup to utilize the roof antenna (a good thing) but the connection to it isn't right.  You should be getting as many radio stations as your chassis radio.  :'(
