Tag Axle Raising

I have a 2013 Anthem and noticed when backing up the tag does not raise. You hear air escaping but the tag doesn't seems to move at all.
I'm being told this is normal it just releases pressure on the tag so the tires don't scuff as much. I'm meeting with the Spartan rep and would lile to know if this is normal or do other Anthems raise the back tag any?
Thanks

I can't talk about the Anthem but with my Dutch Star when I back up the tag does not raise into the air. It just takes the pressure off the tires. So you are most likely operating the way it's supposed to.

Anthem is the same as Tony described; the tag doesn't raise, it only reduces pressure.

K3 chassis the same. There's an unload switch, which just reduces pressure. There's no lift switch.
