The antenna was loose on our fiver, so I had a RV dealer adjust it when it was in for service. I did not check it, but when I got down in Florida, the antenna would not rotate. I called a RV tech and he adjusted it for me. The charge was $52.50. I thought this was very good price as it took him around 45 minuites. I had called the dealer back that did the service and not sure they going to give me the money for the service tech or not. If they don't they not see me anymore. I would like to know where can I get a adjustment tool? It looks like a very long socket to tighten the nut holding the antenna. The antenna seems very loose again.

This is only a guess but it is likely you have a Winegard antenna, and that they may have a special wrench for this purpose. Go to www.winegard.com and perhaps you might either find the wrench or more likely, contact them direct for an answer.

Gook luck,
Skip

According to the WINEGARD SENSAR manual it is nothing special just a 15/16" 12 point socket.
