AC leaks during rainstorm

Twice now, while weathering two strong rain storms, I have encountered a water leak coming from the filter area of the AC unit. Tomorrow, I am going to make sure the hold down bolts are still snug.

Has anyone experienced this situation?

Only on my last trailer with the 13.5k unit, it was the 4 hold down bolts. There was a gasket between the 2 so don't over tighten.

Happened on my first E19, 4 hold down bolts were not properly tightened. After tightening, no issue. I think vibration is the cause.
