My wife and I went camping over the 4th of July weekend. I went to put the antenna up and the handle came off. I put the handle back on and used an allen wrench to tighten the set screw. At the end of our camping weekend, I put the antenna down and the handle came off again. I see the plastic has cracked and I am not able to use that handle any more. I take a socket and wrench to lower the antenna and get the trailer home.
Here are my questions for you fabulous folks:
1) Has any of you made any modifications to the antenna handle? If so, what was it?
2) I intend to replace the handle before we head out again next weekend. Is there a "heavy duty handle" that replaces the plastic one?
3) Should I replace just the handle or the entire assembly? The shaft is still good, so I would rather replace just the handle.
Thanks for your input and suggestions. I can't wait to hear what mod's have been made on the antenna handle!!!
