Hard saying, not seeing, but if you can surround your problem area w/ 1xwhatever
, then you can run your J-channel around that.

Thanks for your quick respose. Do you mean to put say 1x3 around the mast and service box and then put the j channel the 1x3?

It could be as simple as the other guy said. I avoid doing vinyl siding like the plague, though I've done acres of all the other kinds. Sometimes there's a wire or a pipe going into the wall in so that it's impossible to notch the siding gracefully in a way that comes out decent. That's when I do what I said. I 'trim' around it with wood a little thicker than the siding, then butt the siding neatly to that.
