Dash air on 2003 Tropical 350

My dash air cannot keep up in the hot months and sometimes refuses to blow at all. I suspect it needs a charge of freon.

Can I add freon to the system the same way I do my Jeep or truck with the DIY kits you purchase at auto parts stores , such as A/C Pro?

The A/C Pro works very well on the Jeep and is easy to use.

Or should I take it to a shop?

Thanks, Marc

Assuming this is the Ford chassis, yes.. you add it in the low pressure line just like any other vehicle.

It's a diesel pusher on a Freightliner chassis so the refrigerant lines have to run to the rear of the coach to reach the compressor.That is what makes me wonder if a DIY kit has enough refrigerant in it to fill that big of a system. It would certainly be easier if it had a front mounted engine.

It may be low on refrigerant, however that will not cause it to not blow air. There may be another problem then just being low on refrigerant. Most likely a problem with the dampeners that direct the air.
