Roof leak

I have a 2018 27FB trailer and have experienced a water leak twice in the roof area over the front bedroom. Both times it happened in severe rain storms with high winds; and of course at night while I am sleeping and both times waking to a wet bed. I suspect that the rain is somehow getting in around the A/C unit that is near the area where itís coming into the interior of the trailer. After it happened the first time, I brought it to the dealership but they were unable to find anything on the roof that looked suspicious. They said that they also ran lots of water on the roof to see if they can find it. Nothing. So now it happened twice and I donít want to take it in again and go through the painful process of leaving my trailer at the dealership only to find out they canít find anything again.

So my questions are, has anyone had a similar experience where water was somehow getting through the A/C unit? Can wind driven rain make itís way directly into the unit and somehow find its way into the living space? Any idea what I can check specifically on the A/C unit? I donít believe (but not positive) itís exterior calking because it doesnít leak during regular rain events; itís only during the high wind and rain storms.

You can always check and make sure the 4 mounting bolts that hold the AC in place are snug. Make sure the AC gasket has some compression to it.
