AC roof leak

Howdy!
So, after 3 years, no leaks from roof.. Around the main original AC. All the rain the last couple days and we have a leak!

Well, I decided to check torque on the original 1999 AC bolts.. And they are not snug...at all.

Resnugged and no more drip..new axles will resolve the harsher ride we are seeing as evidenced by more "movement" inside of items. We do not get a "shake" like out of balance.. But roughness. Seems like it's time.

I'm glad you fixed the source of the leak so quickly and easily.

Thank you for the reminder to check ours. I replaced the AC seal when I was Eternabond'ing the roof seams in early 2014, haven't checked those bolts since.

I haven't checked the bolts of original AC since purchase. Now I know the second AC install required replacement of bolts because the ones they shipped were too small in diameter!!!kept loosening!!! Thanks Lewster for that fix!

Will replace axles before next big trip.
