Add me to the leaker list

Uncovered it a couple of weeks ago. Went back out to the storage Friday to get something from inside - glad I did - found water on the floor and couch under the TV antenna crank. Took the crank assembly off from inside and found the water was not coming down the shaft, but from somewhere else around it. Went on the roof and found that the cable was sealed good. I found one crack in the sealant that I hope was the culprit. I cleaned things up and resealed the entire assembly again. We never use the antenna, so I sealed up the swivel as well. I need to get some silicone spray and pull the shaft out spray it down. Hopefully I got it...

When you reseal places on the roof that have small cracks and such, do you just put another coating of sealer over the old? I did, and extended it out a bit more onto the roof membrane. Is there a point when you have to totally remove old sealer and start over?

I know on my old R-Vision I had to re-seal a leaky skylight above the shower that I hit with a branch. Like you I just poured self leveling sealant over the old stuff and it worked just fine. I feel that if it works.. its fine Im sure that your supposed to remove the old stuff but I Couldn't figure out any good reason to do so. Im sure someone here can elaborate.

as long as the original seal is not loose and peeling then you can go over it...

Just clean the old with mineral spirits or denatured alcohol then apply new. You can remove the old if you want, but I'd only do that if it was really bad.

Well, it seems to have worked. Rained pretty good and all is dry. Hard to believe that one little crack was letting that much water through! I figured it was the problem because when I pushed on the area around it, water came up out of the crack...
