Antenna leak

I have a 2016 39mb and have an antenna leak dripping on to the steps. I went on the roof and resealed the mounting area but thus far haven't found or stopped the leak. Has anyone else had such a leak? Tips with this problem would be greatly appreciated!

The normal place for that leak is at the antenna cable connection. Usually the cable boot slides up leading to a leak.

Ladies, my apologies I looked after replying that you weren't a Sir! Since you have a 39mb 2016, any problems with your bedroom slide leaking at the base of the columns on both sides?

Thanks

I had an antenna leak on my 2016... If you take the shaft out, there are 2 "O' Rings on the shaft that dry up and go bad..

Winegard sells replacement shafts with everything on on it already..

I will take a look at that...did you have a drawing of how the shaft is removed? Thanks for your help.

Here is one - - https://www.amazon.com/Winegard-4731...42891416&psc=1


There are 2 different lengths...1 at 12-1/4" and 1 at 14"... they told me I could buy the longer, remove the old one and compare.. If it needs to be shorter, the shaft can be cut easily... as far as directions, YouTube is your friend...
****. They ( Winegard ) also told me that sometimes the o-rings inside get old and dry... SOMETIMES you can remove the upper cover and drop a few drops or squirts of oil sown the shaft... that could help the o-rings re-seal itself.


DISCLAIMER - -

I never did either as a rather LARGE TREE had other plans for my antenna, roof and Redwood

Turbo, yes as to leak, but only when there is a strong wind, but if yours is like ours it's missing a bottom wiper seal or some type of seal on the bottom when the slide is extended, because you can stick your fingers almost inside. I can see daylight out the left hand corner (looking at the bed). I still have an open item with RW and had hoped to get resolution at last years Rally that never happened, hope this year is better. Right now I cut a section of an old 5/8" garden hose and stick it in there when setup more than overnight.
