    Not directly out of my wallet, but I have to find the time to get underneath the thing and swap that compressor out. I'm getting good at it though. And I like working on it. The little victories keep me going.

    Well, having working AC would be a victory. We need pictures too.

    That would be cool

    The very first caveat in their warranty was "Must be installed by a certified mechanic.". So, the very first question the seller asked me was "Who installed it?", followed by "what else was done when you installed it."

    I didn't lie or exaggerate, but I told them in great detail what I had done and the events that led up to my discovery of the seal failure. They responded with:

    "I took all the information you gave me to my remanufacturing manager, and he said during the time in which you purchased this compressor, we had a run of bad seals from our supplier, and he thinks that's why your compressor became defective. He also thought you sounded very knowledgeable, and appreciates all the info. I can do 1 of 2 things at this point. 1. Send you a replacement compressor with a pre-paid UPS return label. 2. Email a return label for a full refund. Please let me know."

    It really could have turned into a big fight, with them having the upper hand. But they were really cool about it. I'd definitely do business with them again. arcticblastaccompressor on eBay. They sell new and rebuilt compressors.

    Glad things worked out for you on the exchange. It is also great to hear about the seller being honest and not giving you the run around. It isn't as rare as people think, but the few bad ones give all a bad name.

    So I guess they certified you as a mechanic. Go out into the world and do good now. Make sure to wear the Limo badge.

    Our Fleetwood also recently got a habit of insufficient cold blowing because of lack of use lol . Today, it was recharged with the stuff . They found some leak marks around the compressor and they fixed it our driver called me .At least, I know to whom I contact if they failed to repair it lol
