There are some antennas that do not need to be cranked up. Maybe that is what is installed on your Jefferson. Google "no crank rv antennas" and see if any of the pictures match your antenna.
Welcome to the forum. Good luck with your Jefferson.

I googled it and didnt see any no crank ups like mine. Mine looks like the old wineguards you cranked up on the antenna part but the base is different. I am sitting in town so I would think I should get a good signal. I will climb on the roof and get a better look tomorrow. Thanks for the quick reply.

Also look for a boost button near the tv.

The antenna on our trailer is one you do not crank up and it is omni-directional. Unfortunately, it does not work very well. It is at the rear of the unit, at the lowest point, and the signal is blocked by the higher part of the unit and the air conditioner. While in Florida for several months we purchased an antenna at the flea market, a pole and clamps at Lowes and attached it to our ladder, running the wire in through the slide. This worked well.

I own a Jefferson
Even tho the manual says there is a crank
Nope. They put in a cheep omni antenna that does not move
If it had a crank it would be above the fridge next to the ceiling light
