Unscrewed this cap and sprayed some silicone down in there. Raised it up and down a few times.

Wish the PO of our rig had done that. Instead, they managed to mostly strip the hex-shaped shaft that the crank attaches to. The crank setscrew machined itself a slot all the way 'round. Now I gotta figure out how to get the crank to firmly engage the shaft. Sigh...

What if you get a new handle and just drop it down a fraction of an inch on the shaft?

Good suggestion, NACSKINS. The whole thing is pretty chewed up, but I may be able to do that. I was also thinking maybe I could carefully file the shaft back into a hex shape that would give the setscrew something to ride on. The other thing that would be better would be a metal handle that would allow me to really crank down on the setscrew. The plastic handle's threads won't take much tightening, I'm afraid. Wonder if Winegard makes a metal version...?

I'm not sure if they do or not. I had to have our original handle replaced because the nut was stripped. Was told its a pretty common problem. If it happens again after the warranty I will likely just fashion my own more sturdy version.

Just drill a dimple into the `D' flat in the middle of the score mark. That will give the set screw something to bite into.
