A/C unit mounting gasket

I just fond out from a dealer that the a/c mounting gasket needs to be check yearly. There are four bolts that hold the a/c frame and gasket around the roof opening and if these bolts are not tight enough the gasket will leak as mine did. It rained one day and I had a leak at the top of my rear window, I thought it was the window so I taped some plastic over the top of the window out side. well that did not help so I check the rest of my rig knowing water does travel , no luck. contacted my dealer and he had the answer. I checked the a/c gasket and now no more leak. last night it rained really heavy and no leak. this will be on my yearly to do list.

My understanding in regard to the AC Gasket is that it needs to be snug but not overly tight. If too tight will deform the gasket and cause a leak.
Now I could be all wet, but that's what I have picked up from other RV Forums.
