Today, my wife and I drove some 350 miles to the Lonestar Tri Five gathering in San Angelo Tx . Real nice trip except for 40 miles of rain on a narrow 2 lane "highway" and a turkey that somehow I missed running over. We got to the hotel and I started to clean up the car. When I got to the front end I heard hissing from under the hood. The hissing was the AC high pressure hose venting all the freon. I told my wife that my motor repairs held up and we averaged 17 mpg, But needless to say my wife was not thrilled at the news of a long hot ride home with no AC. Oh sell, the Cd player works. LOL

I sure sympathize with you. It's that sinking feeling again, as just when you thought that nothing else could go wrong, along she comes and throws another spanner in the works.

Maybe you can find a local attendee that has a/c equipment and can help you fix it if it's a bad hose. You have to fix it sometime, might as well be sooner than later.

I'm in IL. so big difference, but this summer is my first experience with my (no air) Nomad. I generally don't use air on my other cars unless it gets very hot and sticky. Could only imagine what Texas in the summer is like. Hang in there!!!

If the high pressure relief (safety) popped off. It could mean you are not getting enough air thru the condenser. It would have to be over 325 psi to relief. :anim_25: bowtie-trifive :gba:
