Good Morning, Frank, Thanks! DB, Yup I sure wouldn't recommend anyone get into body work as a full time job. Aston, I would certainly get a new AC unit not hard to swap out and your done and should have a warrenty. Rail, Thanks.

If you've been following along you all know I've been working on my truck, I pulled the bumper pull hitch off to repair the rear frame, as I was cleaning it up I found something that surprised me and it's something that everyone that pulls with an under body hitch should do, here's a video of what I found.

Another great video Terry, and a very good public safety announcement.
Aston, I agree with the others, a new A/C is the best move.

Good catch, Terry. I have on my schedule this fall/winter to get my MH to Spillar Hitch/Welding in Austin to have them go over my receiver hitch to make sure all is still in good condition. I think everyone should inspect their hitch for safety concerns, either themselves or at a pro shop.

Terry,

The nice thing about you finding the problem is that when you tow something with that vehicle you will KNOW it is safe. It's great that you have the skills and tools to fix and replace these things.

Have you ever wondered what you would do with yourself if you didn't have all these things to putter with? Great work as usual.

Lynne

Thanks guys and gals, I think most of us just take that piece for granted, once its installed. If your in the rust belt or travel thru there its a good idea just to check it out, this doesn't just apply to the bumper type, up under the bed for the 5th wheel attachment too, the way these frames rust and you can't get up there to wash it out. Lynne, if I didn't have this stuff to do..............probley break something so I could fix it

Thank you everyone for the advice. After talking about it, my wife and I decided that we don't want to come home from work one day and find our dog fried from having no ac. The new a/c is scheduled to be installed Wednesday! And yes... it comes with a warranty.

This also might be an opportunity to go for a 15,000 unit. Additional cooling if the wiring is adequate.

Gordon, luckily I already have a 15,000 unit. My A/C guy was kinda shocked that I didn't have 2 units for a 32' tt.

We were hoping that our ac would last until the new one arrives, but no such luck. It looks like we will be staying with my parents until Wednesday.

Terry, that will be a brand new truck by the time you are finished, your craftsmanship never ceases to amaze me.

-Ashton
