Water Intrusion

We noticed bedroom ceiling water stains in the area under the ac unit. We had some monsoon type weather a few weeks ago. Is it possible rain came in through the ac unit? Any insights appreciated, thanks

Yes it is possible. Might be worth climbing up on the roof (carefully) and remove the a/c cover shroud. There will be 4 lag style bolts holding down the a/c unit. they are not torqued to a high number, but need to be uniformly tightened down. I've had one bolt looser than the others allowing a trickle of water to enter that corner. Might be worth a check to see if you have something like that happening.

There is also a reseal kit available from Dometic (assume this is the AC brand) and with a little help, the unit can be lifted up and away, the reseal applied and the AC replaced and tightened down properly. Can also check for wood rot while the AC is off the hole.
