I snugged mine down just the other day. They were nothing close to what's pictured above, but they had loosened up a little. Just about 1/4" on two of them. Snugged them down to where the indicator tabs just touched the roof and all is well!

This is on my maintenance list.

No, there are screws. I think 5 of them IIRC.

I've got the 2016 Pinnacle 36REQS with the ceiling fan underneath where it appears the A/C unit is on the roof. Any idea how to get to those? Do I need to take the ceiling fan down first to get to them? If so that's a poor design IMO.

Good God this is scary. I just checked mine and they were loose! Only bought my trailer in June, and have pulled it maybe 900 miles...

Careful tightening them. There is a compressible foam gasket between the AC unit and the roof. You will see 4 yellow indicator tabs that lay on top of the foam gasket from the inside. You only want to tighten those hold-down bolts until those yellow indicators just touch the roof. You don't want to tighten them until they won't move any more, you'll over-compress that foam gasket.

It's a typical issue and not a reason to panic, but just another thing that needs to be checked regularly.
Another way to tell how tight is that the gaskets are usually 1" thick and should be compressed to about 1/2" when correctly installed.
