134a if we decide to fix it. I have to get the OK. I like the idea of the Sanden replacement. We have a NAPA store and like buying parts from ourselves when we can. I have done some Trans-Air installations in the past on school buses so I might see what they have for a 3208 bracket. I can make my own hoses if need be. BTW is there even a cooling fan on the roof condenser? I haven't opened up the system yet, all the blowers and ductwork seem to be intact and still working.

Why bother why not run the generator to power your roof top units, it would burn less fuel and not steal horse power off the Cat to run the AC units. I thought about it but a bird buddy who build ac units for a living for the coal mining industry says it is not worth it. Just a thought.
