Hi: ice-breaker... Simple solution is to slice the pool noodle length wise and slip over the edge of the antenna. Cut to fit the length of edges needed... No "Pot" required!!! Alf

Larry,
Why not just turn the bucket over, it appears the original open top is already rounded and should not hurt the cover, but now you may want to protect the camper from the ragged edge, maybe melt the edge to smooth it out?

All good suggestions folks... We all know the old expression that a camel is really a horse designed by committee. However, in our case, it's just the opposite... Good Stuff!

Keep it coming...

It was just a thought, I do not cover the antennae just use the regular cover. I would be leery of anything sitting directly on the roof . In my opinion no matter how padded it is it would move under rain/snow load and wind etc scratching / grinding on surface of the unit.
