Does anyone know where the AC service port is located? Need to add freon but can't find the access port.

Thanks, Kevin

I have not looked but it might be just behind and above the genset in the front of the coach.
The cooler with fan is located lower in that area.

The service ports are on the hoses right where they connect to the compressor.

The only fitting I found behind the gen set near the condenser was very large, larger than anything I've ever seen on an AC. Looked at the compressor again and I have no fittings on or near the compressor, just hoses going forward towards the front.

Will look again to see if I can find a service port, just hate taking it into a service place just because I can't find the port......and also I guess because I'm Scotch...

Any more suggestions welcome.

Thanks, Kevin

Not sure the size of the fittings you seen, R134A ports are larger then the old 1/4" flare ports for R12.
