remove TV antenna and replace with solar panel

Has anyone taken off the optional antenna and installed another solar panel? We don't watch much TV and like free power.

May be easier just to leave the antenna and use a portable panel....

We have an antenna on the corner of the 2013 21 and have the solar panel mounted adjacent to it .
In some situations the antenna casts a shadow on the panel and probably affects the output but we are pretty conservative power users and have never lacked having an adequate amount. I preferred the panel on the back of the trailer as opposed to the leading edge.
( Front).
