The first thing folks who have an RV with a TV learn is the RV is taller than a car. You must lower or pull in anything that protrudes. Most RV parks have signs as you leave. One sign says:
Thanks for staying with us, please come again.
The other sign reminds the driver by asking:
IS YOUR ANTENNA DOWN?
ARE YOUR STEPS IN?
Life is sorta like I heard a preacher in San Antonio say :
“Men, I can give the secret of how to remember your wife’s birthday…………………… Forget it one time!”
If you have time to see trucks and RV’s that were too tall:
As below The antenna and a/c units are off, now it fits.
Usually when an RV’er forgets these once, they never forget again.
On another vein, the evening before we were to leave for the mountains I was at the rear of our coach and noticed the tailpipe was looking at me from the WRONG angle. Under it I found the 4” steel tailpipe BROKEN off and dangling. I cannot remember hitting anything.
Must fix it. The third auto parts store that was open had the 4” muffler clamps. I was able to smooth the break by cutting the pipe and reinstall. After a couple hours we were good to go.
Then on the morning of our departure Stella and her mama came out to say good bye. I asked Stella if she wanted to ride up the hill in the motor home, BIG smile and YES! The coach was ready (?) and I raised the jacks and eased forwarded. I looked down at Stella and said, “Ask your Grandma if the antenna is down?” (I just ‘knew it was), I didn’t hear the ‘NO!’ from Sherry and nor did I hear her tell Stella to shake her head no! BUT in the mirror I did see a power line shaking after it had ripped the TV antenna off the top of the coach! OUCH!
Oh well, we did need a new one that will import the HD stuff (our sons watch TV while visiting). Amazon was nice enough to agree to send us one, it is headed this way as I type. (smile)
No matter what your way of life is, some times there is a little bump (or two).
The antenna might make our TV so good, I might watch it.
Do you have a favorite car from your past?
I loved this little one we had:
This was a ‘55 Nash Metropolitan.
