I wonder what else I’m missing. Better keep on reading this forum!
Right from the owner's manual, page 9-2
A special foam gasket is placed between the roof material and the subframe of the
air conditioner to guard against water leakage. The air conditioner is subjected to
wind pressures along with motor vibration during normal operation.
Inspect the mounting bolts for tightness to ensure there is no leakage or looseness at least annually.
Re-tighten bolts when they are loose.
DO NOT over tighten these bolts as it may damage this gasket.
