Lubing the TV antenna

Have a 2014 Gulfstream 19ft super lite.

There is a message on the TV antenna crank saying to lube it every six months. I guess it means it, because the first time I tried to rotate it, the directional wheel snapped off.

At least the part was cheap to replace. But I'm wondering what exactly do you lube? Do I need to get on the roof and lube from the top down? Or try to spray from the inside and let to drip on the bed?

I lube the gears and pivot points of my Winegard batwing antenna with silicone spray, (from the top/roof only).

Great and timely thread. The last weekend when we went out I added this "to do" to my list, but was unsure on how to do it! Thanks

It is difficult for the two of us to do some of the maintenance things that many here do themselves. For instance, we always take the trailer back to the dealer to winterize.

I bought my TT from a small local dealer. When I had it winterized last fall, I asked the dealer repair shop to do the TV antenna crank, as mine had the same maintenance sticker. They said no one had ever asked for that before.

They apparently went on the roof to do it, and found some roof issues that were taken care of at the same time. So, that was a win-win for me.
