A/C recharging on pusher - Where are fittings?

I have a 2008 Coachmen Cross Country diesel pusher and the engine a/c needs freon. I have looked all over the engine compartment and can not find the fill fittings.

Can anyone tell me where they are?

Naturally the documentation from Coachmen doesn't say a thing.

Also, when I needed help on my 2005 Winnebago I was able to go to their site and download everything IO needed, wish Coachmen had the same info.

Most of the DP I serviced, had a service port in the line at the compressor and under the front cap at the the point where the heater hoses and freon hoses went into the coach.

On a Newmar Dutchstar diesel, they are up front on the passenger side the same as described by ga traveler. You will have to look up after you open the hood. I'm doing the same job tomorrow. Have a small leak (4 cans once a year) that no one has been able to find. It will go back in the shop in July and we will try again.

Thanks, they were up front. The problem was the compressor fuse which was NOT where the book said!

Thanks a million.

I just checked my Islander, it needs freon and the high and low pressure fittings are 3" from the compressor, one on the return and the other on the exiting. I put a a/c gauge on the low pressure and measured zero. I'm just wondering how many cans of the stuff am I going to need for a 40' coach!

FWIW. My 2001 HR is 41 ft long and it takes 4 lbs of R-134. Exactly what my owners manual says it needs. Can you believe that? Good luck!
