I see everybody here comlaining about taxes (either less deductions, paying in when retired, etc). As probably one of the ďyoungerĒ members here who did benefit from the tax break I dont feel sorry for anybody older than me having to pay more taxes. Every generation in the US has continually voted in politicians that have constantly spent more than the government has taken in. Recognize you may not have voted in that person, and I am not criticizing individuals, but now my generation and my sonís generations will have to own, and pay for the sins of the generations before us. Yes...you can be mad at the politicians for raiding Social Security but remember yall voted those politicans in and now Iím funding your Social Security with no hope of ever getting it myself.

Rant done.  Now flame away but realize I am one who worked my way to the top through study and labor, paid my way through college working nights, and paid AMT (alternative minimum tax) until I got married and had a kid, so Iíve already paid more tax than most will ever in their career.....and no I didnít grow up priviliged nor do I have several multimillion dollar houses.

Apologies.....I hate hearing retired people complain about taxes. I know a lot paid their share but it gets my blood boiling because a lot did not.

I did my '89 Chevy G30-based Coachmen dash air last year.  I didn't change any components other than the adapter ports, but i had to crack open the compressor because the case seals were bad so I did all the compressor seals. It wasn't terribly difficult but there were a couple of challenges and I had to charge it first with dye to find the leak.  Based on my research, it's important to get the right A/C gauges, and a vacuum pump to evacuate all moisture out of the system prior to recharging it.  The 134 was relatively cheap at Walmart.  I was able to borrow all of the tools for the project at Oreilly's Auto Parts.  Once I was done it worked great considering it blew hot air otherwise.  It's still working well this year.

This is why I'm NOT having mine done. My buddy had his right knee replaced and says it's the best thing he has done. He's 74 and walks a couple miles every morning. First off I have NO body to take care of me after surgery, and IF something does go wrong, well I'm just not having it done. With a bad heart and early stages of COPD I can't do much walking anyhow. I finally quit smoking after 55 years, had some bad COPD attacks  back in Feb. thought I was going to die a couple times. Made up my mind after a few weeks on the patch and quit. March 23 at 7:30 in the morning was my last cigarette.  Quit the patch one week later.

Here is a simple way to diagnose the problem.

Get a cheap 12 volt tester, (just a ground wire with a clip connected to a probe with a 12 volt bulb in it,about $5.

Connect the ground wire to a good metal ground.

Touch the tip of the probe to the small metal square at the top of the plug in fuse.  If it light up you have 12 volts to the fuse,

Touch the other small square in the top of the fuse at the other end.  If it lights up the fuse is good and you have 12 volts to the pump.

Now the problem is either the pump or the controller circuit.  Ground the black. (ground) wire and if the problem is in the ground/controller circuit the pump should start running.

At least you will know where the problem is.

Good luck and those cheap 12 volt testers really can check many things on your RV.
