Two antennas on top of Sunseeker 3170ds

Trying to figure out what the second antenna is on top of the Sunseeker. I know there is a TV antenna up there but there is another one that is about half way back. What is this?

Yay its a Dometic box with what looks like a normal radio antenna coming off the hood of the truck

Ok so if this a radio antenna, how can I tap into it? I have a HAM radio unit I am in the process of mounting and wanted to see if I could tap into this or if I needed to mount a separate antenna

No the ant is it long and skinny

I doubt a Ham radio would work off the stereo ant.

I understand but what is the point of the large Dometic box and radio antenna? There is already a radio antenna on the front of the cab. What purpose does this serve?
