Is this an Antenna?

It's definitely an old XM antenna, I know because I just replaced mine. They don't make that type anymore.

I started getting spotty sat radio reception. I contacted Fleetwood and was told to replace it with any Sirius/XM antenna of my choice. I got one on Amazon. Installing it was a pain. The antenna cable is feed thought the ceiling behind the head banger TV. I then had to route the new antenna cable down the driver side A-pillar to the dash, then under the dash to the radio. The replacement antenna was much smaller than that huge mushroom, so I re-installed the OE mounting screws and covered them liberally with Dicor, sealing around the new antenna in the process.

Satellite radio works great now.

Looks like the Sirius antenna that is on my 2005 Winnie Adventurer. Location on the front is about the same. And I see you have the same crappy CB antenna is the same place. What's the little white mushroom to the right of it?

A&E Awning wind sensor - which actually works.

Trying to decide what to do with that CB antenna as I do want to add a CB. The Sirius antenna will get a little Dicor and left alone until for now. Eternabond won't stick to that sealant.

UHF Transit antenna. Previous owner may have had a radio in the 450mhz frequency range. A Transit antenna is a low profile rugged mount antenna designed to handle limbs and low hanging stuff. Transit buses and trains use these. Not the most effective gain but they offer reliable and life time use. It could be 800 mhz but not likely.

However, as an owner of a communications company I can tell you I had vhf, uhf, and 800mhz antennas on my rv's. I made radio and telephone calls in places it took years for cellular to cover. In many cases there is still no coverage in some of those areas.

It could also be part of a cellular repeater system the previous owner had. It could be the outside antenna part of the system.

If you can find a coax and the connector the picture of the connector would really be a big hint.

If your talking about the original question, that was solved and it is a Sirius antenna. The white mushroom device is a wind sensor.

Glad I stumbled on this thread. I have the exact same little dome on my 2015 Georgetown. I was wondering what it was for. I thought maybe my coach was satellite-tv ready and that was just a cover. Alas, its only a satellite radio antenna. Drat...
