Just brought it home this weekend, cleaned the roof and inspected it, all look good. Started raining very heavy and noticed a small leak coming in throught where the TV antenna come into the coach. Is there some type of rubber gasket that can be replaced on the winngard antenna from inside the coach? The mounting plate on top of the roof is sealed and I beleive water is coming in thru the antenna hardware, not through the plate.

Thanks for the help.

I've had the same type of leak on two differnt coaches. Both times it was the rubber "Boot" that covered the coax from the antenna into a stuffing tube going through the roof had worked it's way off. I simply filled the tube with some good silicone caulking and pushed the boot back on the tube. No more leak. Good Luck.
