Does the antenna lower?

Hi there. I promise to introduce myself later, but right now I have an immediate question, as we are currently driving down the road. We have a 2017 RPOD 180. Does the antenna raise or lower or does it stay raised all the time? When we push the button and turn the knob all it does is turn the antenna around. It doesn't lower. If we turn the know without pressing the button it clicks.

Mindy, there are several types of OTA antennas, without knowing which one you have on your unit it is a guess as to an answer.

From your description it sounds like you might have a King Jack antenna. If that is the case it does not lower, it stays about a foot above the roof of your unit.

Looking at video time frame 11:10, it seems your antenna is fixed and only rotates, does not go up and down....
