I read the Owners manual recently
If i recall correctly, if you are in any of the Special Modes ie: Jack, Transport, Wheel Alignment, Protection, etc.
The manual reads that with driving, it defaults to normal mode

Transport Mode is disabled by driving the vehicle.
Tire/Jack Mode is disabled by driving the vehicle.
Wheel Alignment Mode is disabled by driving the vehicle.

Pages 410 - 417

just put it in entry/exit mode and it will be fine. Unless you drive over 10mp or whatever it is it will stay at entry/exit and be fine. Time has nothing to do with the level and the sat antenna is pretty much flat so it will not be a problem.
Gt is correct that when you disable by using tire jack mode any speed will turn air suspension back on. So I would use entry/exit mode.

What about in transport mode?
I'm sure it will do the same but curious.

Either way the OP will have 2" clearance even in normal ride height

Driving in any maintenance mode will result in the vehicle going into Normal height mode. I've tried it on mine. Entry height will stay until reaching 15 MPH at which point the EVIC will display "raising vehicle". I suppose if I were in a parking garage and it started to raise, I'd just slow down and hit the lower button again.

Speed is 15 MPH for it to raise. Here in the US our satellite antennas are shaped like a shark fin and sticks up about 2".

In Canada our antenna only sticks up maybe 1/2 inch. You really can't even see it unless you look at roof of truck.

Though according to the RAM 1500 Spec guide the overall normal ride height on a 6'4 CC with 20" tires is only 77.5 inches which is just over 6'4 and is enough to fit Underground parking lots with 6'6 Clearance as I triple checked this as that is the clearance I have at my works underground in Toronto.

So it should be fine with 2" clearance without lowering it. though I will probably lower it anyways to have extra clearance and be on the safe side. specially if there any bumps or high spots in the garage.
I know this is old..... But can you measure your trucks height in entry/exit mode? Or can anyone do this?
Especially those wwith CC and 6'4" bed?

Where I Park once a week downtown, I need 75" clearance to get in and then all is OK....
