Flashing lights, waving hands toward roof and, in the case of the dish a quick U-turn to chase down the errant motorhome were to no avail...the overpass beat us to the RV
The Satellite dish impact with the overpass was MUCH more spectacular than we imagined; we were SO sorry for the other motorhome. It deeply imprinted on us the "put the dish DOWN" mantra!
As for dangelies on the crank, we do not have to crank down the TV antenna any more (it's Electronic) the Satellite dish, OTOH could well be a...issue. So we hang our old antenna dangelie on the tech cabinet
