Chassis AC Charge Ports on 2002 Journey DL

Anyone know where the chassis AC charge ports are on my MH? I've looked through all my book and at the MH and can't locate them. My dash AC blows warm. I have the Cat 3126E

On our 2005 journey they are in the geneator bay on the passenger side towards the top.

On my '97 Adventurer (7.4l Chevy) the refrigerant lines and their charging ports are under the hood above the radiator, one near each corner You may want to start with a can that includes leak detector (dye) and stop-leak in it. If you see dye seeping out or it loses pressure (gets warm again) before the season is over (was only a day for me without these extras), you should have an AC professional look at it. Ask your local mechanic who does AC work (and specify it's on an RV in case they need a larger shop bay or have to work on it outside).

Same on ours. You did not specify what coach you have, just assuming that since you said Cat that it's a DP.

There are also two valves that shut off hot water from the engine to the heater that we turn off in the Summer. That might be your problem. They are located in the same area.

The coach is in the subject line. A 2002 Journey DL 36GD. Thank you for the response.

On hot days on the road we seldom use the dash air. It's just not adequate to cool the whole unit. We run the genset and the Heat Pump/ AC. That way the entire coach is cool. In cool weather we also run the furnace while on the road. Never a problem.

Thanks you, I guess I should have realized that. I found the ports and added Freon last night. It's cooling now but just now real cold.

I read where you found the charging ports, added Freon and still not cooling well. Check the fresh air damper located at the bottom of the cooling/heater core housing. It is vacuum controlled and can be seen looking up from underneath. A vacuum motor is located at the bottom outside corner. It could be failing or a vacuum line leaking allowing outside air into the interior thereby affecting the air temp. Easy fix, just hard to get to!
