Dash Air Compressor Repair

This I have kept on the back burner. I would like the consensus of this group as to whether it is worth dropping $800 or so on a new compressor for the dash air (diagnosed). This is a P32 chassis, and I have not heard much good about its (air conditioner) reliability and its ability to produce the needed cool air, or even if it is worth running it. It has been inoperable since I purchased this unit, could have used some fresh cool air on several occasssions. Opinions?

There seems to be a lot of differing opinion on this subject, so I think it's going to come down to a personal opinion for its value to you. I had to spend almost that much last month getting mine repaired. It was worth it to me for two reasons.

1. I travel with furry critter which has a coat that would make a mink look naked, thus a/c is a must. It is a backup in case of generator trouble, which I've unfortunately had in the past.
2. It sure helps keep me cool on those hot summer days when the sun is beating on you through the windshield. It also helps defrost the windshield on rainy days.

So, for me, it was worth it.

What in fact was the 'diagnosis' as to what is wrong with the A/C ??
