does anyone know a good A/C mechanic in South Floirda?  We just purchased an old Prevost which has "over the road" A/C.  The compresson comes on but keeps going off.  It may be low on Freon - yes it is still Freon 12 - and this is probably a good time to refit it, but I can't find anyone to work on it.  Thought you all might know of someone.
Thanks

Novice,

I'm not sure where you are in So. Fl  but, I use a company in Ft. Lauderdale called Polar Bear for my retrofit parts.

Maybe call him and ask who he knows in your area.

Thanks Nick,    I live south of Miami, so it's not far to go to Ft Lauderdale.  I'll call him in the morning.

Novice, if the guy Nick recommended isn't able to help you...I know a guy in Pompano who's been working on A/C's for over 40 years and is hard to stump.   Bob

Bob, dumb question but does your guy work on buses?  The guy Nick gave me was very helpful, but the people he knows won't work on buses?  As for Pompano, that would be great, we live south of Miami, but Pompano is not that far.

Let me give him a call and I'll verify whether or not he can help you.

Sorry, he can't and doesn't know of anyone is South FL who might be able to help you.  His only answer was the because of the amount of refrigerant these systems hold your best bet would be one of the conversion outfits or
a Charter bus outfit that does outside work.

He's able to work on the basement A/C's, like Cruisair, etc. but draws the line on the super large units.  Perhaps Jack or Fred might be able to point you in the right direction but they're upstate quite a bit.

I'd call some of the Charter outfits and see who they might know that can help you. Someone has to be doing their work.  Trust me, knowing the guys on this board...someone will come up with something for you.

That's what I was hoping for.  I figure if anyone has researched this it would be one of you guys.  I have started on the same path you were talking about, I have made contact with a fleet maintenance shop in my area.  The guy we need to talk to is out sick at the moment.  Hope that pans out.  But..... in the mean time.....

Got it from my bus garage index. Ad says he does A/C work on all motorcoaches.
