Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!
The antenna position switch on our coach is a simple mercury switch mounted on the pole. When up it completes a circuit to turn on the dash light. I suppose the wiring could be shorted at any point.
Noticed you are kinda new on IRV2 and wanted to say hello!
Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
