In most cases the owner of the new attachment must pay all makeready costs to get proper clearance. It can get costly fast. That's the OP's problem, Frontier doesn't want to raise their attachment or if not enough room then set a taller pole. There are some cases where which came first, the cable alongside the road or the driveway, but its usually up to the utility to make it right.

You are saying that the owner of the property has to pay the cost to make it the proper height or to NESC spec's?

No, I'm sorry, I was replying in reference to earlier post when someone runs a new cable on the pole (company running the new cable) they are responsible for the cost.

Use your driveway as you normally would. They will eventually figure out they need to raise their lines.

older guy, what a bummer. I live in a small town. I park my rig behind the house. I have to use the alley to get to my drivewqy. I have walked the alley with a measuring stick. All the wires the cross my alley are above 15'. The brother in law's 5th wheel is like yours. over 13'. They stay with us, when passing through this area. Yep, to low. Hope you cah get this issue taken care of.

Safe Travels.

Be aware that local codes do not necessarily incorporate the National code recommendations. Before getting aggressive with Frontier, check with your local code enforcement people for their opinion. And if it actually is in violation of a local code, you may be able to get them to serve notice Frontier.

Gently pull or back under the wire until it just touches, then climb up on your roof and accidently let your wire cutters slip and cut it, let the cable fall, and continue on your way. If you're leaving, your neighbors will be calling the company for the repair.

And you are not legally responsible for the low hanging line you just accidently cut.

I had a similar issue once/a few times when I worked as an OTR trucker.

I would come home and circle the block to get to my parking spot next to my house. In the process, I took down three or four cable lines that crossed the road/street.

Neighbors called the cops, cops would just say it was too low, too bad, call the cable company to fix it.

They did fix it a few times at the same height, then after I and a few delivery trucks took them down again, it was set at the 15 foot height and no more problems.

I just called the cable/ telephone company and they were there three days later as promised. Raised them with no problem.
