How to Drop Down the Kitchen Faucet

We have a 2022 Rockwood 2608BS.
We can't seem to use the dropdown feature on the kitchen faucet. Although we can see the weight on the faucet hose under the kitchen sink, the faucet seems locked in place.
Any idea how to get this to work? It would make washing dishes so much easier.
Help?

I've never heard of a drop down faucet. Who makes it?
Have you tried pulling on the faucet head? Ours just pulls down to extend it toward the sink.

Oops - yes. Pull down is a better description. My wife and I have both reefed on the head (short of causing damage) but it won’t pull down.

get a flashlight and get under the sink. I suspect crazy piping or tangled lines.

No manufacturer? It looks like that one has a switch on the back of the head. Does it do anything? I think ours you have to twist a bit on the head to unlock it.

Thanks. The button moves from stream to spray. I’ve tried to turn the head and unlock it but no luck with it

This may be the case. I’ll check that out

If all else fails, call the dealer.

Get under the sink and push up on the hose. This will help distinguish whether the hose below the faucet is tangled on something, or the hose is jammed in the faucet tube. I've never seen one jammed in the tube.

There is a weight (cast zinc, usually) that is clamped or snapped around the hose to make it retract. It should be on the hose, as low as it can get and still apply gravity retraction force.

If some goofy assembler put it on the hose right below the faucet it will cause the problem you describe. Unscrew/unsnap it, slide it down as low as you can, and re-screw/re-snap it closed. You may need a small straight-blade screwdriver to unsnap it.

Not to be xenophobic, these trailers are assembled by Amishmen. They may not have plumbing in their homes, just a pump, so they may have misassembled it. If that's what the issue is, could you post a picture?
