Antennae Wobble

I am taking my Surveyor in for some warranty work, and am wondering if my antennae wobble in the raised position is normal or not. I will have them look at it if looseness is not normal.

I've never had a problem with standard bat-wing antenna looseness/wobble on the three trailers I have owned, and this is the first time that I have seen anyone ask the question on the multiple forums I have belonged to for years. However, if you accidentally left it up and had a close encounter with a tree limb... Note that I can't answer the question with respect to other types of antennas, such as satellite varieties.

Richard, thanks for the reply. We do have the bat-wing style. I don't remember the antennae on my Trailmanor being this loose. We bought this trailer new, so it should not have been hit in the raised postion.

I will put that on my punch list.
