1996 Winnebago Vectra Central AC Charge ports?

Hello all...long time camper (travel trailers) first time Class A owner and newbie to the forum.

So I could not pass up the deal on this 1996 Winnebago Vectra Grand Tour Ford 460 Puller. Its in "good" shape and as usual needs a little TLC.

I have the manuals from the original owner but its not helping me. The central AC which is "basement" located, or under chassis is not blowing as cool as it should. I pulled the panel on the side and took off all the inspection covers I can see. I cannot locate the AC high and low side ports so I can test the pressures. And as I said the manuals do not specify where either. Can someone tell me where they are? THANKS!!

I don't believe they have test ports in them. All you would need to do is follow line on top of compressor for low side. Line on bottom is high side.

Hmmmm....so how does one charge/recharge the system? I do see where the lines go in (left side rear) but your right no visible ports.

Have a 94 vectra with basement air for a couple years now. Was also not happy with the air when I first got it and then discovered my ac was dual compressor. Single stage for 30amp service and dual compressor for 50amp service or generator power. Switch above microwave had to be flipped and freeze you out !
