Question weatherguru1

MY engine AC is failing again. I have a 2015 Georgetown 352 XL with a Ford V-10. It failed early this summer. It was fixed by a local Ford dealer who said it was only "LOW" on Freon. No leaks or damage of any kind were found. The same thing is happening again. I can only get cool air out, about 70 degrees, when the outside temp is 80 degrees and 45% humidity. Unacceptable by any standard. Can anyone one lead me in the proper direction to get this fixed once and for all?

On my chevy silverado, I had a similar issue that turned out to be a bad temp sensor. They had to go through replacing the ecm, all wiring and some other part before figuring it out.

sounds like you have a freon leak if it worked ok after they added freon for a while

Had our ac compressor replaced, the compressor was leaking between the casing halfs. Sound like ford wants to just charge it instead of finding the real problem. Heard that the compressor leaking is a know issue. Good luck.

First thing you need to do is get a new "dealer"! These compressors are KNOWN to fail...often.

Then get one of these, it has a gauge.

and a couple of these.

Watch your gauge and don't over fill.

Here's a forum search for R134a (Georgetown only)

If it is low it has a leak.
