Height of my coach

Hello everyone my question is . Is there anything I can put on the top of my coach which is 11ft3 to the air condition such as a marker or a whip that would keep me out of trouble such as taken down wires I know it wouldn't do me no good on the highway but in my local area there Are low hanging wires going into businesses and private houses and if I'm going slow enough if I had something sticking up on the overhead it would hit that and not my air conditioner

The only time I have seen wires low enough to hit my 13 foot high coach, even on side roads, is when there is a heavy ice or snow load on the wires. You really should not have many problems with your 11 foot 3 inch coach.

Mount your CB radio antenna on the top of the front cap so it is at least 6-8" higher than the highest point of your coach. Mounting instructions for most antennas say at least 2/3 of the antenna should be higher than the roof-line.
