Default what is this on my roof?

while doing a little preventive maintenance on the roof of my trailer I found this fitting. Picture is not very clear but it is close to the antenna and it has notches that looks like it could be set at different angles. Its a bit confusing for me because it does not have a wire or anything coming up from the bottom of it. If there was one at one time it was covered up with decor and I can see it now.

I had a 2006 model in the past and your picture looks just like what mine looked like after a pine tree branch won a brief battle with my FM whip antenna. Before being broken off, it was about 10" to 12" tall, about 3/8" in diameter, black and flexible. The radio units on CruiserRV TTs are so inferior, I am reluctant to suggest that checking to see if your radio pulls in stations is a good way to test the absence of an antenna. Good luck.

Thanks jbfunfinder, I purchased this used so I wasn't sure what came up their originally. I have used the radio and it seems to get decent reception without it so that's good.
Do you recall if there should have been a wire going to the antenna? If I decide to replace it I may have to peel back the decor sealant to find it if one was suppose to be there.

On my 2006, the antenna was directly above the cabinet-mounted radio unit. The base portion of the antenna was screwed through the roof at that point.
