a/c freon leaking
Hi, I am finally back to my bus. It is a 1987 Chevy g30 mini/shorty handicapped bus. I discovered a very easy way to remove the seats, etc. Everyone here seems to think it is difficult. Here is what I did. I went and got a little of my favorite blended whiskey, some ice, and my favorite mixer. Then I got the grille out and began grilling two steaks while sipping. During this entire time I gave my 18 year old football and weightlifting award winner son a bunch of tools and told him; "If you are going to use this bus to tailgate at college (he just started), you need to help out. All the seats were out and the locks were installed and the Handicap lift (very very heavy; we needed help) was out in one day. Worked very well. Steaks were good (at least I think they were).
Here is my problem, when I bought the bus, it had a new a/c compressor and drier and the front air and the rear inside inner roof hang down (not roof top camper type outside air) air was and is ice cold and has an incredible air volume. However, when I add freon, I always add dye but sure enough; three times in a row, all the freon leaked out and I cannot find the leak even with the dye. Are there any particular areas that routinely leak on these systems? The reason I am asking is that it looks like they built the ac systems and then built the bus around them. Very frustrating to work so very well and then nothing in about one week. Time for some more Crown Royal.
