One of the most likely parts of your RV to get damaged by accident is your TV antenna. It is out of sight and out of mind. It is just too easy to get in your RV and drive away while forgetting to lower your antenna. In doing so, you will be handing it over to the first available low hanging tree limb or power wire.
A very common practice to remind you that your antenna is still in the raised position is to place a clothespin or piece of ribbon on the crank handle. When you raise the TV antenna, take the clothespin or ribbon and go put it on the steering wheel. That way, the next time you are traveling down the road with a clothespin on your wheel, you will know that the next stop you should be looking for is a RV parts dealer to purchase a new RV antenna.
