At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

To find the height of your unit you need a ladder tall enough for you to see the roof from, a 2x4 about 8’ long that is fairly straight, a level and a 12’ or longer tape measure.

Place the 2x4 on the highest point (usually the Air Conditioner near the rear of the cover (the back of your unit is higher than the front so if you have a ladder it may be higher). Place or tape the level on the 2x4 2” side. With the bubble centered, measure the distance from the ground to the bottom of the 2x4 to get your actual height. Note: I use the measurement to the top of the 2x4 as my absolute minimal clearance.

If you need to know the height EXACTLY......you garage door is too low.
And then what happens when you buy the next RV to fit?

Mine is 11ft 6” so I call it 12ft. There aren’t many places that low, a tunnel or drive thru could that low. But who goes thru a drive thru in a Class C?

Of course there’s that one low bridge that’s on YouTube…..

Probably someone who goes by two first names. Like "Billy Bob" etc.

Do these measurements when connected to your TV on level ground...
