After the last storm, I went and checked how my 5er had made out.
Everything looked great, until I went forward. There were some water drops on the basin counter top. I looked up and there was the mast crank. It had a drop of water on the edge of the "wheel"-not the crank. How is thes sealed and what can I do about it?
The crank-up Wineguard antenna has an "O" ring in the shaft. A shot of silicone spray every six months keeps it from drying out and allowing water to leak down the shaft. Check your manual, crawl up on the roof, and get to work.
There is also a rubber "boot" on the outside around the coax connection. I'm on my 3rd RV and it has come loose on all of them with exactly your symptoms. I get up on the roof, shoot it full of silicon and jam it back over the connection. Then leave the antenna where it is for a day or so until it fully sets. After doing that I've never had another problem.
Lube the "O" ring and check the rubber boot on the coax. Had a drip once from the boot, a dab of sealant on the end cured that.
