I don't share this sentiment.
First, Brian has made it clear that he contributes here in a largely unofficial capacity - he shares insights and info but any customer should feel free to take their support needs to their dealer and Forest River customer support.
Second, I understand that an RV is a very complex item, made up of a wide variety of bits and pieces from a wide variety of vendors. A system which has worked in the past may run into problems due to a change at the vendor - something FR won't know about until units hit the road. And even then, FR is generally going to try to sort things out with the vendor to get a reasonable solution for everyone...but this can take some time.
And third, for those of us who may not have easy access to dealer support...or who just feel more comfortable knowing what's going on with our own RVs...I think it's great that Brian provides suggestions like these. While I can understand some owners not wanting to mess with it, I don't think disconnecting the antenna is a particularly difficult operation and having that as a suggested workaround seems like a good idea to me.
Just my 0.02 (or maybe 0.03...)
