Just came out of Quartsite,Az for the last 2 months boondocking. Now in the Pacific NW and, you guessed it rain and alot of it. Made a stop for the night in Eureka,Ca. to find water had leaked into the rig from somewhere. I have a Fifer and the leak is in the bedroom. When its gets light I will get on the roof to inspect.
It is a good possibility that it may be coming in at the antenna. If so how does one make the repair? Has anyone experience this leak problem and how did you make that repair. I can use etherbond around the outside of the metel connection on the roof but how to repair where the antenna enters the roof itself? Any thoughts?
I just repaired one on our 5er, it was coming in at the boot on the coax cable. The hole in the boot was too big so I filled it with silicone till I can get back up there and change it.

One of the most COMMON reasons for a leak at that point is the rubber boot just slipping off of the nipple where the cable goes through the roof. check that first to make sure this hasn't happened. It's about a 10 second fix.
