I have a 2004 Newmar Scottsdale with a Workhorse chassis. The dash A/C is sometimes running warm. I think that it is low on R134 freon. Is this a DIY project? If so where do I install it? Can someone send a picture and procedure for the install?
Thanks ..............

It c an be a DIY project, but with your question of "where do I install it?", I would recommend you pay to have a professional help you. It needs to be diagnosed as tot he problem and it may not be a low refrigerant issue.

If I weer close enough, I would be happy to show you the correct and safe way to do this. We live near Cypress, Texas.

Here is a link that shows how to recharge. Of course if that is not the problem this will not fix it.

Great link Rotts4u
I am not a AC tech,I don't even play one on TV In my opinion R-134 is very sensitive to both over and under charge.
I use a thermometer to top off my system. I place a thermometer inside a AC vent that is visible out front. I add R-134 until the temp stops dropping. That is what I consider full. I have a set of gauges and an ambient temp/pressure chart I use to ball park it. I am not sure if it is the correct way, but it works for me.
