Hi all, we have an Itasca Meridian 36m (2013). There are two little antenna on the roof in front. When looking at the them from front they are both laying down instead of standing up. Sorry if this is a stupid question as I am new at this. But shouldn't these stand up? If yes is there a switch to do this or this is manual operation. What are they for? I see the separate TV antenna (wing shape) and separate satellite (dome shape).

My guess is that they are for the radios in the coach and maybe a CB radio.

Maybe your owners manual has more information.

I have three little antennas.

Two black rubber ones that connect to the radios in the bedroom and dash. One of them is in the front and the other is towards the back of the coach.

One steel antenna that is for the CB. It's in the front also.

They don't lay down, however the rubber ones are bent over a bit due to wind.

Mine are hinged at the base, prevents them from breaking off if a tree tries to eat them.
One is am radio and the second is (I am told) for the fm radio.
The rubber ones are for the sat. radio.

tiffins come with a cb antenna and a radio antenna on top. These are spring loaded so they can move if they hit a tree branch or something. I am thinking that maybe your has a base that can rotate downward when it hits something and that is rotated downward and is not coming back up. The best thing I can recomment is to get up on top of the coach and see what is going on with them.
If you dont want to climb on the coach ( I personally hate doing it) Take them to an RV center and ask them to look for you.

I have a 2006 Itasca Meridian and I'll try to answer your question. I have two 'rubber' antennas, one in the rear for the bedroom radio and one mid-coach for, I assume, the exterior AM radio. I have a spring-loaded antenna up front for the AM radio and a flat-on-the-roof antenna for the satellite radio. I also have a Winnebago pre-wired CB antenna on the roof.
