Winegard Rayzor z1 Antenna issue

Just returned from an RV trip to Utah and discovered that the new-style Winegard Rayzor z1 low-mount antenna on our 2017 Jayco travel trailer was GONE. Apparently during the trip the antenna broke at the post about 1" above the base. We don't recall hitting any object and the A/C unit is located just in front of the antenna to protect it. We suspect that the force of air at highway speeds caused it to break.
Anyone else out there with a similar experience? We'd like to learn whether this is a common problem with this new design from Winegard.

Welcome to the forum.
Can't answer your question. Strangely though the install PDF has this disclaimer.
Think I would at least approach the installer / dealer with this info. and see how they act. We never underestimate what the wind can do while traveling or otherwise.
Yikes, I guess just lost is getting off easy?
Best of luck.
