I've almost left the antenna up twice, but each time I caught it on the walk around.

I've left the city water cap off a couple of times - caught it each time when I did a walk around at a rest stop.

Unhappy Steps down ...

I left my step down for about 25 miles - no problem and found my water connection cap off, but never left the antenna up. After that I got more humble about carrying a list. Laminated it, just stuck a paperclip on it and move it down as I complete each item. Store it on a hook in my wardrobe.

I've seen several ripped up awnings due to high winds, so I normally put my antenna down and awning up if I leave the camper for even a few hours.

I confess to leaving the batwing up for about 3 miles. My wife remembered it. I'm sure no one here has tried to hitch up with the levelers still down.




Me neither.

I did, on my 22-foot International. That jack really groaned while trying to get the tongue up far enough to hitch up.

I also once pulled into position to lead a caravan with my antenna up. I got a bunch of CB calls from everyone in the caravan right away.

Cool Oops!

One other thing I did that I forgot. I pulled out and left my fly open.
I promply pulled over and closed the tackle box.

2 reasons

I have never done this for 2 reasons:
1. I use the checklist the PO gave me.
2. We do not have a TV in the TT!

No TV ..no need for the antenna to be up.

Last summer when we were up in Maine we watched a VW Westfalia camperbus drive out of a campsight and down the road with the pop up fully deployed. My friends and I could not believe what we were seeing. Never saw him/her finally stop to put it down. Maybe they were living life on the wild side.....

I have however stopped a person because I saw their antenna was still up...I have yet to see an awning still out.
