05 National Tropical dash A/C

Any body know what kind of Freon they used for the dash A/C I think ( hope )
It just needs topping up, Iím guessing 134A but I donít see anything on it telling me which type they used?

All automotive systems (includes Rv's) were 134a in your model year.

Other issues

Thanks for your reply about the correct Freon.
Have you experienced any slide opening issues? My main room slide opening has somehow tweaked.
I have checked the slide & it seems to be the opening, I had to have the slide adjusted & now the paint lines are out & it still just barely fits without rubbing on the opening frame?
This is a tough fix & I havenít figured it out yet, Iím thinking the body may have compressed slightly towards the front maybe isolator bushings between the body & frame?
When I look down the seam cover above the basement doors I can see that itís not a straight shot, very annoying.
Just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this?
