Pot Holes and roof mounted Air conditioners

I saw it too late and hit a pot hole on I-10 on my way south for the winter.The speaker (mounted above the windshield) broke every hole of the mounting screws and fell the length of its attached wires and began swinging directly in front of my vision. The DW jumped up and pulled it to one side thinking I would probably hit something else. The force of the jolt actually broke the plastic around each screw allowing the tightly torgued screws to hold 4 newly made plastic washers tightly to the coach.
We have since noticed that the center roof mounted Air Conditioner has a rather strong rattle. I suspect the mount was loosened there as well.
We have a 2012 Winnebago Journey 40U. Anyone know the procedure to re tighten that air conditioner?

Just four bolts. Snug them all up evenly.

Wow, if the jolt was that bad.....maybe you should have the alignment and/or tires checked.

More likely the intgernals were damaged, Either the blower or the fan (Thankfully two of the lowest cost "internals" and easiest to replace)

Short story: Neighbor here at Cathead Creek was up working on his Carrier Air V (Air Conditioner) Same symptom, bad rattle.. I helped him remove the inner covers (I had two of 'em stil have one) and he quickly found the blower hub was cracked and allowing it to rattle.. Late Friday, RV stores closed save for CW and that's a hundred mile hike. Where is he going to find a replacement?

My basement. You see I had two, and when the other one was replaced (The one I no longer have) I scrapped out a few parts. That was one of 'em
Home is where I park it!
