Leaking A/C roof gasket?

Oh great Airstream repair sages.

I have noticed water leaking from the AC of my 95 Excella ONLY after a rain.

It's a Duo-therm Penguin.
I figure it is the gasket between the A/C and the roof.

How does one replace this, is it done from inside of the trailer?

I've been on the roof, and can't imagine working on it from the top.

Anyone tackled this project?

Michael, in order to fix the leak, you will have to replace the gasket. This is done by removing the air conditioner (you don't have to take it off the roof, just set it aside), cleaning off the old gasket, and replacing the gasket with a new one.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
