Water leaks

Was out 2 weeks ago for a 2 day weekend. It rained the whole time. Woke up an Sat. morning to drink of water and stepped in a small puddle of water just below the AC unit. I took the filter off and looked inside the AC unit. I could see that a small amount of water was coming between the foam gasket and the roof membrane. I could also see the factory put silicone on the mounting bolts where they come throught the roof. I did'nt want to mess with because it is still under warranty. So on the trip home (120 miles) it poured all the home. I was expecting a flood. It did not leak a drop. Hows that? I was going to take it back to the dealer to have them look at it but they were real bussy doing winterizing. He said he might not be able to look at it right away. So I doug into it myself. I took the plastic shroud off the inside to expose the whole inside. Well low and behold 2 of the mounting bolts were not tight. I took a nut driver snugged them up until the foam gasket compressed slightly. There were guide makers to show how far to tighten the bolts. Then I put silicone back on the threads were bolts come through the ceiling. So far no leaks its been raining hard for 2 days. Well I guess I saved at trip to the dealer. Sometimes its easier to do things your self. It only took 15 min. to do
