Thanks, ceedog. I'll look for that on my rig, but I would be surprised if it handles the refrigerant. I'm looking for a leak for the 3rd season, and I'm at wit's end. Fortunately, Walmart offers 134a refrigerant for under $5 a can right now.

Moose, the small compressor that in Ceedog's picture provides air to the vent that change where the ac/heat goes. I.e floor vents, wndow deforgers vents or stright to the drivers area. (it might be an vaccum operated system, however it controls the vents)

Dash AC

Suggestions?
If the rig is new and a Ford and the dash AC has any problems, I would take it straight to a Ford dealer to investigate it since it comes under their warranty. I would trust Ford more than an RV dealer when it comes to truck items. I had fluid leaking from my new Georgetown compressor and the Ford dealer just slapped a new one on and didn't ask any questions. My rig sat for a year before it was sold which is bad of ACs.

FYI:It's a Berkshire on a Freightliner chassis not a Ford.

Seems like a common problem. Tom had the same thing.
