Mine comes through the roof 16-18" from the antenna. Guess you're lucky if it's only 4" away. Don't notice a whole lot of noise from it. More noise from the vent covers. Not sure why it wasn't done like every other manufacturer and bring it up at the antenna base with a little slack for rotation. The Winegard batwing has a spot for it, but mine's just sealed up. I've questioned this on here before when I first got the MH. I thought it was an afterthought or a screw up, but in fact this is just how they do them. Pros and cons to every way of installing.
Any kind of nautical background Geri? Noticed you used kts instead of mph.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
