Most likely have this antenna ( CA-2500) that does not raise/lower or rotate. They are marginal as they do not rotate. If TV reception is important to you, you might look at adding a Jack antenna. The plus of this antenna is it is less likely to leak.

No crank to be seen and personally I don't care but Dh thinks he cannot live without tv and Internet. Thanks Flybob. But what is a jack antenna?

Your dealer, the one you bought from is the best bet, Camping world runs install specials now and then plus I think they sell the Jack (combo deal on both?) never hurts to ask.

This is the Jack head that I mounted to the existing antenna arms.

And to those that are following along at home, the red light on the bottom does light up!

Any RV Antenna is Marginal when camping rural. Sat is the only way to go, with a portable dish!

X2 on the satellite. I have a carry out that I use. I have a 2015 Salem and it has a stationary antenna. I like it. Where I live the reception is very good.
