Sattelite dish raising?

I parked my motorhome and shut off the power. Upon returning a few weeks later, I discovered that my satellite dish had raised itself, I went onto the roof and lowered it by hand. A couple of weeks later I returned to find that it had mysteriously managed to raise itself again, once again the power was shut off.
The area I leave it in is windy at times, do you think it might be strong enough to raise the dish. The control box is unplugged.

Tks Bob

Is this a Winegard Trav'ler? It should not be able to raise by itself, especially with the control box unplugged. There is a worm gear that has to turn to raise and lower the arm so even wind shouldn't be able to move it but I guess anything is possible. Pranksters?
