Some info on the Winegard crank-up Sat. Dish............ when mounting the base to the roof make sure that the little black tube is laid as shown in the installation instructions.
The outside end of the tube should be pointed to the rear, flat on the roof and not covered with sealant on the end. That tube is the drain for the water that runs down the shaft and into the base which is shaped like a dish and will trap water. The water would rise up and then run down the shaft and drip off of the crank handle inside the RV. In my case it dripped on my wife's side of the bed. Not good.
It was originally installed by a "nimrod" at the Fife, Wash. Camping World.
All FYI. Hope it helps.
