The problem is not the compressor, it is the a/c compressor pulley bearing failing. When the pulley bearing fails, heat is created at the compressor hub and overheats the compressor shaft seals, causing refrigerant loss.

If its the pulley bearing- I wonder it it would be best to replace it as a maintenance item. - or maybe its not that common- just you hear about every one because of the mess it makes.

Which Camp Freightliner class were you in?! (We were in the 5-6 JUN Class)

And X2 Michael was adamant on those spare parts. Still not sure how I can vacuum-seal a serpentine belt (I am thinking of one of those under bed vacuum-sealed blanket bags) but the food saver not only seals meats for the freezer but fuel filters/water separators as well

Bob our food saver comes with rolls of bag material to make any size bags.
