Don't Forget the RV Antenna!!!

Was traveling south I95 to Jacksonville, FL this morning...as usual, I was admiring any RV I would see traveling the roads.

Spotted a truck and TT traveling north I95...they forget to crank down the antenna!!!! It was waving & flopping down the interstate...yikes, I'm sure he's gonna have some roof repair on his hand.

if we inspect our rig before we leave
at a good distance away
I like to be proxy 20' out

things like an up antenna or things hanging
or
things not put up

stand out to the eye
all so easy to catch from a distance

That's what happens when you don't follow the checklist.

I do something very similar and always have. I call it the 'Stupid Check'. I'll stand back 30 or so feet and walk all around the trailer examining top to bottom on all sides. On more than one occasion I've spotted something that should have been stowed, disconnected or latched shut.

That's just bad business. It is so easy to do.

For some reason I have the hardest time with my door handle/step railing. I cannot count how many times I have had to stop and close that silly handle. I can admit it, I am door handle dyslexic. You would think I would close it when I stow the steps, but you would be wrong...

when we put the antenna up I hang truck keys on knob that way I have to look at the crank before I can hook up

Driver 39 (Al) gets the outside ready, I get the inside ready. When we THINK we are ready, we switch areas and do a walk through and double check each others work. I left the shampoo and body wash in the shower once and he forgot to undo the dogs tie out once. It helps to have a second set of eyes to do a double check.
