Stupid question:

Anyone know what the rubber antenna is on the roof in the middle of the coach? I have three antennas on the roof 1 cb, 2 rubber, I think the one by the wind sensor on the front is the radio. I'm just not sure what the rear rubber is. The base is cracked and I have to order another one.

On my 2003 Suncruiser I had the same setup. The CB antenna was up front as well as a rubber ducky, which ran the radio. The second rubber ducky, which was mounted mid-ship, fed the outside entertainment center radio.

That's exactly the reason for that antenna, for the radio in the entertainment center..

This is what is is for. Not sure why winny just didn't put a "y" connection and drill one less hole in the roof.

I have two radio antennas on the roof--one up front and the other about 2/3 of the way back on the right side. I had assumed that the front antenna was connected to both the dash radio and the outside 'entertainment center' radio (which is immediately behind the right front wheel) and the rear antenna was for the (optional) rear bedroom radio (which I don't have).

Does anybody know for sure whether that is the case?

I have the bedroom radio and I have three rubber antennae. The two you have plus one all the way aft on the roof. I assume the front antenna is for the dash radio, the middle antenna is for the outside entertainment center and my aft antenna is for the bedroom radio. I cannot confirm this from the wiring diagrams, however.

The antenna cable from the radio in the front bay does go to the duckie mid way back. I can't verify where the rear one goes because I don't have one. Common pratice is that you run a seperate antenna for each radio. I actually removed the mid coach antenna and ran a 2Meter antenna in it's place. Had to remove the bedroom tv to do it but that's another story.

If so, what is the antenna all the way forward connected to? Could it be for the sat radio?

I was getting confused with the different answers as to what the rubber duckie antennae were for, so I called Winnebago. Rod said, "The front antenna is for the dash radio, the middle antenna is for the outside entertainment center and the aft antenna is for the bedroom radio." He further stated that in his 18 years at Winnebago, they have never used one antenna for the dash radio and the outside entertainment center.

Using a Y would split the signal strength.

I have two antennas side by side in the rear. One for the bedroom radio and one for the outside radio.
