Chassis AC Compressor Relay

I have no freon in my ac system so my ac compressor will not come on and allow me to add freon.
I want to put a jumper on the clutch relay to make it start.
only issue is that I cannot find compressor clutch relay.

1999 fleetwood discovery 36t
freightliner chassis

thanks

Look for the low pressure cutout in the suction line to the compressor and just jumper the connector.

Turn the can upside down and feed liquid into the low side. Let it sit a while to boil off. You should be able to get enough gas in the system that way to avoid to having jump the low pressure cutout. Or put the can in a pail of hot water and feed vapor.

Alright finally got enough freon in to start compressor
It took five 12oz cans and still wasn't getting cool
I bought on more can and it took about 2 oz and pressured up
Running now at 54 degrees using an oven thermometer
Hope I did everything correctly

Good news. You might want to bubble check the fittings to see if you have an economically repairable leak. It's a trade-off between how much a repair would cost and how much refrigerant you have to keep pumping in, because it's for sure and for certain you have a leak somewhere.
