I want to use the Penquin for my A/C.  But I've heard that as of the first of the year, the Duotherm A/C's are stopping the use of R22 for a new greener freon (R404?).  Should I try to buy the A/C's now or wait for the new green freon?  Thanks, TomC

Hi Tom,

It's not really a big concern for the RV industry. Most of the mfg's are going to switch to R-417A. Which

is a direct drop in  for R-22.. No changing to polyester oils!  Actually, 417-A is slightly more efficient then R-22.

The residential end has allready switched to R-410A which operates at twice the PSI as R-22 and is the #1 reason

why I don't like it... Especially here along the coast where condencers tend to rott out much quicker then other places.

Refrigerant leaks with 410 are allready a major issue here...
