Ducted Roof Air removal for rubber roof replacement

I decided to make a temporary patch to my roof and in a few months replace the whole rubber membrane, my question is the removal of the roof air conditioning this is the first unit I owned with ducted A/C and I don't want to mess anything up when it comes time to pull the unit off the roof, is there anything I need to know about these units so I don't damage the ductwork? One other quest there is a reversable temp controlled roof vent fan that might need a new motor can I buy just the motors for these fans? Or do I have to replace the whole unit? Thanks

PS I am just starting to get serious about full time living in a camper my past attempts fell short for various reasons, this time I will be ready! I want to make sure I am prepared for almost any predictable situation I am glad this forum is here it contains a wealth of information and knowledge.

I hope the AC didn't burn it's self out look at the before and after photos of the filter now I know this guy never serviced this camper! I held the filter up to 2 100w lights and no light could be seen through it before I washed it! I really hope it wasn't run that way since 2004! I know that could stress the compressor well now I have to wait till it warms up to see if it will run. I did find the installation manual for the roof unit I guess all I need to buy is a new gasket when I pull it to replace the roof membrane. Everything else looks straight forward, I hope the weight I found online for it is correct 87lbs cause I have to remove it by myself and I have a real bad case of siatica :( if I drop it I guess it's done, maybe I can just move it from one end of the roof to the other while I put the new membrane on? I could put thick cardboard or a old blanket under it so it doesn't puncture the new roof.

One good thing I found is the inside of the AC looks like new not a speck of dirt past the filter.
