When I had the fiver serviced, I had the service department fix the TV antenna because it was too loose. It just did not feel like it did when I bought it. The man that serviced it told me the nut had loosen, so he tightened it. I now cannot rotate the antenna any. I understand there is an adjustment tool to tighten and loosen the nut. I tried some deep well sockets but not near deep enough. The dealer is out of my way and it seems like a simple fix. I am now in Florida over 800 miles from the dealer. Any ideas?
Tom

Hi Tom,
When out of town and have a situation similar to yours, I look in the Yellow Pages and make some calls. If who I am calling does not have what I want, they can usually refer me to another local business. If you know what you need, the Yellow Pages might be the answer.

I finally called a RV tech and for $50 he fixed it. I will now try to get my money back from the RV place that serviced it in the first place. I probably will not get anything but if I don't they seen the last of me. I will also give them good feed back.

Tom, this is one time that I wish we had a motorhome. It is much easier to turn it than to have to hook up a fiver and turn it. We got home today after 2 1/2 weeks in Florida. Now all I got to do is wash and wax the rig.
Tom
