22452Re: [classicrv] A/C conversion from R12 to 134
- Oct 1, 2005I also want to try it on my RV but am afraid to with what happend in the Mercury. Someone else told me that you have to ad mineral oil to the hose before adding the R-134. The oil goes directly to the compressor keeping it lubed. It weighs too much for the R-134 to move it from the compressor.
Don't know if that's true either.

Guess I have had better luck, I have converted several cars over the
years to R 134 using the $29.00 home conversion kits in all cases it
worked out fine, not quite as ice cold as the old system but a lot
better than no airconditioning at all.
