Default Trailering with open array radar

Iam upgrading my electronics and adding radar. I was wondering can you trailer with a open array radar? I have plenty of bridge clearance not exceeding 13'6. Wondering if it was hard on the unit? Wouldnt know why it would get bounced around on the water. Cant really say I remember seeing a boat towed with a open array. But then again Iam getting old and the memory aint what it use to be.

Thanks Charlie

Yes if your open array is 13'7" it is hard on it when you go through a 13'6' overhang I have open array on my CC and trailer, no problems as long as I don't strike overhangs.

Consider a cover for your antenna. You would be amazed at the number of stone strikes you will receive on the highway. I speak from my experience in towing a fifth wheel trailer RV for several years.

And what better place to ask but THT.
