I had to do the same to mine recently. I made up a cover the same size and shape as the antenna base out of plexi-glass, attached it using the same screws to the original screw holes and sealed it with Dicor.

Duhhh...um...
Well, thanks VERY much for all the great ideas and help on this problem, first of all. They've all helped and I've found the solution, but-
I went down to the property yesterday after picking up a few items that were mentioned here. But when I got up on the roof and checked it out, I realized that the hole that I was looking at wasn't the old antenna hole (which was about 2' from it), but is the vent stack to the washing machine drain in the closet. The antenna hole has been capped and sealed already, and what I was looking at was simply the hole for the vent, surrounded by the base of what had been a normal vent cap with the plastic 'clips' that slide into the plastic base. I can't believe I didn't put 2 and 2 together and take notice of the old antenna cradle next to the actual hole. I did not even think about the laundry closet being on the other side of the wall a few feet from the interior antenna hole! But there it is! Some good news is that the previous owner already has a new cap and base for that in the basement of the trailer, so I even have the parts I need to fix it. As if it really needs "fixed", since it isn't an issue if some rain water goes down the hole anyway. So, thank you everyone for the big help, and forgive me for not being a little more observant of something that was in plain sight the whole time. Lee Butcher
