Thumbs up Workhorse Air Conditioning Mystery

I recently bought a Four Winds Hurricane 2004. Now that it's Summer I found out that the AC does not work. After looking around I found this part hanging. One side is connected to the part where you refill the refrigerant and the other is disconnected. I could not find where the other end (shown in the photo) suppose to connect. I spent hours finding possible connections to the compressor or AC parts but I mysteriously could not find any. Does any have an idea where this should be connected? Thank you in advance!

Just to clarify, is that the dryer? Did you remove? It is normally mounted so it is vertical and higher up as it looks to be laying on the air is take. Sure looks like the line is cut off from the photo.

Another note, there was a bulletin on the air intake that extended it upwards to aid in preventing water ingestion. You might want to look into that while your fixing things up.

the two pieces that are cut.. are there.. just look at your pict.. that pipe off the dryer is cut and the piece to it is just under the hoses and if you move up the dryer you can fit them back together BUT.. you got a big job.. how long has that been cut.. a/c hoses are coach parts and hard and expensive to get.. ultra might help.. but if open long you are most likely have to replace compressor.. as above the dryer does not go there and looks like previose owner zip tied it there to get it out of way.. but why.. he most likely could not get dryer nuts off, check if rounded.. there must have been a reason for moving it.. just guessing the a/c must have stopped working and therefore he did not care about cutting line to get to what he needed,, new rad?? clean rad blockage?? unknow.. now what was bad on a/c to begin with?? was it compressor or condensor, evap, if you try it you self you will have to pressure test each part and check for leaks.. ofcourse the dryer needs replaced..look at the foot print on dryer and look for a match foot print on same side but higher up.. i have seen where some people use a compression fitting to connect a pipe like that.. temp fix until you see what was wrong with it that the owner did not care if he cut it to fix what ever he was after.. i bet the condenser is leaking because they are the most expensive.. but sorry you will still most likely have to change compressor and so many other parts.. good luck.. let us know if you are trying it or getting it done.. get back to us.. there are good a/c shops that can make you a new hose.. and i have seen repair kits at the big box auto parts.. just look online in a/c hose repair parts.. i got my dryer at big ap store..

just a thought.. you could temp connect two pieces and pressure with 100 bls of air and listen for hissing to see if there was a leak.. hang in there.. it will be worth so much more if a/c is working.. I am sure better members will chime in and help you with even better suggestions..
