I went a round a corner and heard a clunking noise from the front of the Sedona. Looked in my rear view mirror and saw something rolling along the side of the road. Went back and picked it up and took vehicle to dealer. According to the KIA dealer... Inspected and found bolt had let go allowing clutch to fall out. Correction:Resecured AC compressor clutch. Tested Good.
It also happened that I had called roadside assistance twice in the last 3 days, prior to clutch falling off, because of a dead battery.
Is it possible that the AC clutch problem caused some sort of trickle charge on my battery?

Normally you would check for voltage at the relay then the low pressure switch, then the compressor clutch. With the system charged or the low pressure switch bypassed you should have 12 volts at the clutch and ground. You can also check the clutch with an ohms meter to see if the magnet is open.
check the sway bar kinks for play both rear wheels will have to even ramps work good if you have them if the is any play in the links it wil rattle also check for play in the bushings that the bar goes threw tis will also give you the noise you complain of
