Top Tip for Antenna


July 29, 2015
Filed under 10-Minute-Tech


Many RVers have been dreadfully reminded — often by a low-hanging tree branch or an overpass — that they forgot to lower the rooftop TV antenna. And how many people fail to look up during a walk-around to ensure that the antenna is down? While lying in bed one morning and wondering whether the antenna was up or down, I thought of this tip: I simply cranked down the antenna completely and marked the ceiling at the end of the handle, using a green stick-on label for “go.” When cranking up the antenna, I make sure that the end of the handle is on the opposite side of the mark. Now I just have to remember to check the position of the handle before getting under way.
