No TV so the antenna is always down.
But I do know of a guy who forgot to raise his jack and dug a nice big "S" into the soft green lawn of a certain PA Airstream campground.

I'll 'fess up: I once forgot to raise my jack. Scared the hell out of me, so now I do a walk-around - twice - before pulling the Bambi. Hasn't happened since (or anything else that I would have been kicking myself over).

Yes, we left the antenna up once but cranked down before any damage.


Last month in an RV park where we stayed, a high-end SOB moho driven 5 mph sideswiped and damaged a building on a bright sunny day.

How? Both the driver and passenger forgot to push the button to retract the 25-foot power awning still extending several feet out.
Besides the building damage, the RV itself suffered boo-boos where the awning arms were ripped out of the moho body. And the awning fabric, roller, and arms made a long, grim pile beside the park dumpster.

We wonder whether the awning-retraction task was on his checklist or hers . Or neither

Never my Antenna

Hi, I never left my antenna up, But I did leave my steps down once and noticed them in my mirror while on the freeway in Phoenix, Arizona. And twice I left my sewer adapter in the campground and had to buy new ones at the next stop.

Antenna?

And here I though all along that was a funny place to have a folding clothes rack. I'll put away the rabitt ears and update myself to 1950's era technology.

Actually I removed mine last year...on purpose...sort of....but who's to know...See the tag line below...it speaks volumes.
