Leaking from a.c. Vent...

Okay, so the first rainstorm my new Rockwood was exposed to uncovered a problem; leaking from roof a.c. vent. Dealer suggested I take interior cover off, tighten four bolts, but the unit appears to be tightly secured to roof (I'd rather not cut seal around interior vent if I don't have to). Anyone else have suggestions?

If you are using the AC and the area has high humidty it does cause water to form inside the ceiling vents below the AC unit.
Also if you notice that the inside of the windows are fogging up is another way to tell.

Solution is to open up the vents a little so the air can be exchanged.
Even us humans breathing casues higher than normal humidty in a closed room.
So open it up a tille and turn on a fan and let us know what happens.

I had the same thing on my flagstaff. I carefully cut the caulk with a razor blade and removed the grille. I could see that bolts were not tightened enough. Take a 1/4" drive socket and snug it up so the gasket compresses. Not too tight. I put the the grille back on. I did not have to recaulk because of the clean cut I made with the razor blade. You can not see the cut. It has not leaked since. It saved me a 40 mile round trip back to the dealer. It really was easy to do.
