Adding 2nd ac unit to 30 amp fifth wheel

I am new to this forum, so this horse may have been beaten to death. I have a 2008 Sandpiper 305rlw fifth wheel with 30 amp service. I want to add a second ac unit in the bedroom where the existing vent is located. I will run a separate 20 amp circuit for this unit. My question is this: How do I find out if my roof will withstand the weight of the 13,500 BTU unit? To the best of my knowledge, the unit will weigh about 94 lbs. Please help!

Update: I asked the local dealership if my roof was strong enough to hold a second ac unit. The answer was yes. I had them mount it for me since I had no good way of doing it myself. I was able to run 12 gauge wire through the ceiling into the bedroom closet and thought the floor. I then ran the wire under the camper using gray plastic conduit secured by wire ties. I put a male plug on the end. I used a 12 ga drop cord and ran it to the 20amp duplex outlet on the power pedestal at the camp ground. It's been working great for five days now. I am one happy camper!
