I'll bet the tax payers appreciate that little "oops!"

Keep reminded of your RV height! Put it right in your signature block. Every time you check one of your own posts, you'll be reminded! Works for me!

I have the info placarded right on my dash above the spedo. I need that info so seldom that I would easily forget it if it were not there.

I put a label at the top of my windshield in the center. Out of the way, but when ever I look up, I see it.

Measuring the max height of your vehicle is an interesting exercise, by the way. Not wanting to hijack this thread, we may start a second conversation about how people make this determination!

13'2" to top of front A/C. Measured mine hooked up to truck in a church parking lot. Unfortunately the AT&T phone cable on the back road to mg house was only 13' or less and quickly ripped down by front A/C. No damage to my fiver but now the phone cable is considerably higher than it used to be. Look up at all times.

someone said "I'll bet the tax payers really appreciate...."

They should, They get an aging old bridge replaced at no cost to the taxpayers. Yup, you hit it, You buy it.

Your insurance agent won't be too happy though.

My problem was that low branch didn't have a clearance indicator on it. I broke the shower skylight

Problem is that it belongs to the Rail Road who should have replaced it themselves long before that happened.
