water leak.

Started getting water coming through where the TV antenna crank is last night during a pretty good rain.
Any good ideas?
My camper is a 2013 x23b.
Would this be a warranty item?

It wouldn't always be covered under warranty. There is an o ring for the shaft that could be out of place or there is a crack in the sealant around the antennae itself.

Being a 2013 I would think it is a warranty item. I will be taking my 19H in for what I consider a warranty issue leak. The dealer said they will look at it and as long as it isn't anything caused by customer damage, it would be warranty.
Of course it would be worth climbing up and taking a look at it. Caulking isn't covered by warranty and that would be a simple fix.

here is a link to the manual with maintenance instructions. You probably have the manual with your paperwork

If your HTT is still under warranty, I would have your RV dealership inspect it before performing any repair work on your own.

For reference, here is another recent JOF thread on the same subject:

I found the little rubber cap that seals the antenna coax run was not pushed down and sealed as it should be on our new unit. Quick fix but it should have been done at the factory or during pdi.

that is why it is very important to get up on your roof once a month or so and look around at everything

X2 - Unfortunately had to wait for the 2-day downpour to stop before getting on the roof and re-seating the little rubber cap.

It's the o ring on the rod. Mine was missing from new. If you can find silicone o ring grease get some and use it. If I remember right. There's a set screw on the crank handle, spring and the collar. It comes apart easy enough, go up on the roof and do the rest of the lube ops on the antenna assy while you're at it. Winegard may sell a rod and ring kit. but dont forget the o ring grease. I have to do it again, it's been 5 years and in a downpour that's what happens

The ironic thing is we've never used the stupid thing!
