Issue with antenna
2 Attachment(s)
Went to install my wingman today and found an issue with my antenna. Apparently it was at one point not all the way down during travel and enough force was ther to put a hole in the arm. Supplies it still was in one price. It was not going all the way down due to the bunched metal so i took off the arm and massaged it back in place. I noted also that the whole assembly was very loose...and possibly an issue with the sealant. Going to re seal this and one other area.

ryand, I can probably just replace the tubes for about $30. Winegard RP-2900 Elevator Tube Assembly : : Automotive

Definitely needs some new caulk around the base.

The loosness is most likely rot under the leaky antenna base.
Clean caulk out real good and make any repairs to the roof before you reinstall the antenna.

I Need to clarify....the antenna is lose side to side as if you were rotating the turret on a tank. I poked and prodded the roof and didn't feel any issues. May look a little deeper into things and post what I find.
