Freightliner A/C Condenser coil

I have a 2013 Itasca Meridian 36M ,and had a leaking ,corroded low pressure line fitting to the Condenser coil down in front of the front axle. The fitting had so much corrosion ( electrolysis) that it took me a hour to get loose, and in process ,the nut took the threads right off the little coupler that threads into the coil ,where the line hooked up to.
Iím hoping I can maybe drill it out and get the fitting out and save the condensing coil ,but if not,I will be forced to buy a new coil.
I have searched the internet trying to find a pic and part number for that coil , but no luck. I am hoping someone here has a parts book with the number of that condenser coil
Thanks in advance

Freightliner's free help line should give you their part number , with that you can do a search with better results .

Have your chassis serial number handy when you call .

1-800-385-4357

The part might cross back to an Evans/Tempcon number .
When I ordered the electric fan , from Freightliner , it arrived in a box with Evans number.

I recommend going to coldhose.com and looking up a like sized condenser. Their prices were the best I found. Also, a new fitting that clamps on to the hose is not out of question.
When I looked up the FL part no....it priced out at like $600.....oh hell no!!

I've attached a drawing from FL DTNA for my chassis...but since most parts are from Evans Tempcon...this should give you reference.
Good luck.

Mevman , I used the part number which now has been updated to a new number, and found a diesel place out of AR. On EBay that has a new one for 368.00 if need be. I an going to try to find a local radiator repair shop that can just replace the fitting where the liquid o ring line hooks up.

Not sure why you would do that when Coldhose has a like condenser for $70.
Best of luck to you in any case. You can buy a barb a/c line fitting with clamp and fix the hose yourself.
