Air TV antenna in winter ?

hi, I am prepping my hummingbird 17RB to be parked for the winter season. after purchasing a cover, I was looking at the little white plastic air TV antenna and wondered if accumulating snow load would damage it with cover weight. should I throw a bucket over it? any ideas? thanks .

OP asking if he should cover the newer style antenna before covering the entire camper with a cover. Are you saying donít cover the antenna and still cover the camper or donít cover the camper at all? Of course the dealer doesnít do either. They donít plan to own it for years....

I have cover for entire hummingbird. was just wondering if that cover is on, would the weight of snow on the cover snap that plastic white Frisbee looking antenna. haven't heard of anyone breaking one yet though. =)

H-man, I cover my 2017 camper but I donít have an antenna. I ordered my camper and instructed Jayco to not place an antenna. I didnít want an extra hole in the roof. If we watch tv itís cable and not over the air. With that said, if I had one I may be inclined to place a bucket over the antenna before placing the cover on. Surprised no one has chimed in as the new antenna debuted with the 2017 models.

bucket will work

thanks south co, the plastic antenna doesn't look very tough, but it was a pre-installed thing. don't even watch TV much, just movies for grand kid on bad weather days.

I have a hummingbird rb and cover it including antenna. It is robust and Iím not worried about it breaking. You could cover it with a bucket or something to protect it.
