Need motor ac recharged in Nevada

In Elko now, heading west towards Reno, on our way to Yosemite. Gary's is too busy, Gateway RV doesn't do recharges, Clark and the other place around the corner won't do RV's. Looking for suggestions. Was working, slowly lost charge, now just blows hot air, must still have a leak in the system as I had it fixed b_/4 leaving Buffalo, NY. 2000 Winnebago Itasca Sunrise, gm workhorse chassis.

You might try just adding some refrigerant to get you buy, get the type with the stop leak in it. I had to add a can to my coach ~6 years ago and it's still working.

I would also suggest getting some dye and adding it to the system, you can buy a kit including the glasses and UV light.

I had a persistent leak in my older suburban, I added the dye and found the leak the next day, it was actually an O-ring on a plug in the compressor itself. Bleed the system down, removed the plug, replaced the O-ring and it has held for over a year now.

I thought about adding myself, there is already dye in the system. I found a shop willing to look at it 1st thing in the morning, will see how it goes. I am guessing I have a leak that is hard to find.

So he put more dye in, recharged it, says I at the least need an orifice tube, and to have my shop replace that when I get back. Had me in and out in 45 minutes
