You are right about the sealant! And not sure about the screws.
Going to dealer next week for some warranty work , we'll get it looked at

Boubou,

I just replaced the two metal (tin) feet on our antenna. I forgot to put the antenna down when I was leaving a site and it caught a tree and broke the foot that the wire runs up. You will be surprised how cheap and thin the metal is. The local dealer wanted 22 dollars for each foot if I remember. I went to Home Depot and got two one inch aluminum square posts that were three feet long. You do not have to cut them but you do have to put a notch in the end of the one closest to the base to fit. I used a Dremel to make the notch which fits around part of the base. It's quite easy to do this repair and the posts fit perfectly and are way stronger. I chose to zap strap the wire rather than to drill a hole in the post for it. So far it works great and it was half the price.

I am pleased to say that our dealer repaired the antenna and also noticed how the caulking was cracked and inspected the antenna and roof to ensure there was no leak. All under warranty. I had mentioned him that I had sent a tweet and message on facebook and he said that if Jayco refused the warranty claim, he would mention it.
Very pleased with this dealer and shop

If you end up going with a new antenna I highly recommend the Jack antenna. I pick up 9 stations without moving the antenna. With the Winegard batwing antenna with the wingman attachment I had could pick up 7 channels, sometimes, but had to rotate the antenna.
