Mine cranks up and down just fine, but it won't rotate anymore. I don't see an easy way to work on it. How is this done?

Mine is the same way now. I think its because of the sealer on the roof is around it .Gonna try to run a utility knife around where it rotates to see if that will work. Will let you know .

Look for a rubber plug on the rooftop side of the antenna mount. The purpose of the plug is to allow for recommended annual maintenance; i.e. lubricating the unit with silicone spray so it will continue to rotate easily; as well as lubricating the seals to permit rotation of the antenna without tearing up the seals prematurely.

Without doing the silicone thing every once in a while, then antenna will become increasingly difficult to rotate.

Countryboy, Homeschooling and camping; just go together like peanut butter and jelly. We've been doing it for about 14 years here in Mason, Ohio. We have 2 sons that have graduated and 1 going into the 8th grade. Keep it up, it's definately worth it.
