A/C roof gasket regular tightening schedule?

Hi all, I'm just wondering how often and how much do you regularly check and/or tighten down you A/C mounting bolts to make sure it's roof seal gasket doesn't leak and cause water damage to the roof? Obviously the seal loosens up from age and movement while towing etc., and it will eventually begin to leak. I once was told by a StarCraft dealer to tighten them several turns every year and to replace the seal every five years. What do you all do?

To be honest I have never in 5 years, do I check it yes. If you keep tightening it I think will depress, you will see it leaking on the inside if it's .

I check mine while doing spring cleaning roof checks. They have never been loose yet.
