Dash A/C accumulator?

Need to replace my accumulator on my 08 MADP. Got a compressor ordered but need to change out the accumulator while I'm at it. Can't read the label. Does anyone know which one I need or have the info off the label?Click image for larger version

Any one will work as long as it will connect on. Its just a storage for liquid refrigerant, depending on how much refrigerant is needed to flood evaporator

Thanks. Got a call into Evans. I did notice there are ones that are charged and not charged. I don't know what that means. Guess I'll find out from Evans.

The picture looks pretty close to what was on our 2002 MADP.
I ordered this replacement.

Charged means there is pressurized freon in it and uncharged means it's empty.
Since you are replacing the compressor I would think going uncharged makes more sense.
I think that is a receiver drier and it's main purpose is to absorb moisture that might get into the system. There is a bag of desiccant inside.
The big thing to do is to make sure you or whoever is doing the repair measures the amount of oil that is in the old components and then adds a little bit more. There is a table to tell you how much. I'm not fluent in RV or I'd link where to look for it.
You might also want to add a filter to the system especially if the compressor failed. If it let go internally it likely sent a lot of metal into the system. If so the system should be flushed before the new parts are added and it's just safer for your new compressor if you have a filter installed.

Something like:
https://www.autozone.com/cooling-hea...-kit/12817_0_0
or
https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/...B&gclsrc=aw.ds

If your system uses an orifice tube that should also be replaced. Doesn't take much to plug it.

Links are just examples not recommendations.

Thanks. I noticed that the belt was gone from my compressor the other day and the compressor was frozen.

My 05 Essex used this:

and this expansion valve:

Precharged means it has compressor oil in the drier ... otherwise you may have to add oil yourself.

You are installing a new expansion valve ... right?
