Antenna arm rubbing roof----

Just returned from a 6000 mile trip from Florida to P.E.I., New Brunswick, Nova Scotia. While cleaning my Rockwood 8285WS roof, I discovered the crank up TV antenna support arms was rubbing the roof at a seam pretty bad.

I had used the add on Digital antenna that was made for the TV antenna. When I installed it, in the kit was replacement rubber feet that you are suppose to remove the existing rubber feet and replace. The new feet do not touch the roof, the support arms come in contact with the vinyl roof at a seam there fore rubbing the roof pretty bad.

I purchased a PKG of four white rubber feet/bumpers with recessed holes in them for attachment. I did not user the steel screws that came in the package but used stainless screws because of the galvanic reaction between steel and aluminum.

The rubber bumpers came from HOME DEPOT, Lowe's does not carry them.

Yep! Mine too.

Here is what I did with some extra "seam width" Eternabond.

I used "Rubber Crutch Tips" with a hole drilled through them in a different project (the Blue Boy bumper mount) with a washer/bolt.

The mount is different now but the components are the same. I will try to get a more recent shot today.

Did not have the tape-------

Lou, thanks for the reply. Now I know I did not do anything wrong. I hope the rubber feet/ bumpers correct the problem.

While on the trip, I discovered a special button on my GPS, I must have pushed it by mistake. it is called "SUPER POTHOLES" button !!!!! I found every pothole on P.E.I. !
