Drove the TV into the city and parked in a parking ramp for the first time. I was nervous, but the height was clearly posted with a metal bar across the entrance. No problem. Drove in and took the ticket from the machine.
Drove slowly and watched carefully
going under everything
. All good. Very close, but OK.
When we left, we continued to check carefully and found that THE EXIT RAMP CLEARANCE WAS LESS THAN THE ENTRANCE!!
There was NO warning or anything... it was just LOWER!
Then, in traffic, we had to stop cars behind us, and maneuver our very long, very tall, TV back to the entrance to exit. At the entrance, we had to make a 90* turn around the ticket booth to the exit side of the entrance by 'wiggle waggling' back and forth to make the corner.
But wait, there's more! Arriving at the entrance from the side, floor of the ramp was a bit higher. So now the end of the metal bar we passed under when driving straight in, was going to hit the roof of the truck! Visualize this; the DW in the bed of the truck, leaning over the cab, pushing the metal bar while I 'wiggle waggled' the truck back and forth to gain enough to make the corner. Wish we had that in YouTube!
We get a chuckle thinking about it now, but at the time, not so much.
Now we NEVER park the TV in ramps, regardless
of the height.
