Digital tv antenna

Sorry if this is already on here, but I searched the forum & didn't see it. I have a brand new 2014 Freedom Express Liberty Edition 310BHDS. My question is about the TV antenna. It is a fixed antenna, which I like, since I don't have to remember to crank it down for travel. However, there is no knob to rotate the antenna to maximize reception (that I have found, anyway). The antenna is fixed with the short "wings" pointing to the front and rear. Anyone know about this (i.e., is this how it is supposed to be?) It has all the optional packages, including the 50th anniversary package, which has the ceiling mounted decoration panel with the LED lights in in. I assume it is covering where any adjustment knob would be??? Thanks,

David

No adjusting needed. It's supposed to be omni directional

Thanks, that's what I was hoping. Dealer didn't mention it & I didn't think to ask.

When I look up omnidirectional tv antennas online, all of them are round. All the look like mine require rotating to find the strongest signal. Anyone know what the model is so I can look it up?

I don't know the model number, but that same antenna came on my 2013 Surveyor. As you say, no need to worry about cranking it up or down. The omin-directional aspect of it is great. It really pulls in a load of stations, crystal clear, from relatively long distances.

I've had it a year, and I've been very happy with it.

So is yours shaped like a traditional antenna and not round?
