What does this dash symbol mean

I have this showing up on my 2013 Newmar Dutch Star. It is on the top line of the display, above the break light. It looks like a T. I attached a picture.

It means that your batwing antenna is up, not cranked down.

On my coach, it's easy for the passenger, while reaching for the seatbelt, to push the power button on the bat wing antenna. We got that light for the first time and it took a while to figure out what it was. It's not in Freightliner's list of icons. I finally looked outside, because I thought it looked like an antenna, and saw the bat wing was partially up.

Since this occurred, I took a piece of black plastic, folded it over into an "L" shape and velcroed over the bat wing controller so it can't be accidentally deployed.

Gosh ... "everyone" knows that is the TV antenna up symbol! I have NEVER spent two hours on a conference call with Freightliner and Newmar, with several call backs, while everyone tried to figure out what it meant .... nope NEVER did that

Let me tell ya' we ALL felt pretty stupid when my wife casually mentioned ... "ummm ... you DO know the TV antenna is up ... don't you?"

We sat in a roadside turnout for about 20 minutes checking the Freightliner manual and attempting to get through to Freightliner before I decided to go out and check.

Maybe it's time that Freightliner do a customer service briefing amongst their employees, about the symbol built into THEIR dash that doesn't appear in THEIR manual.
