    Mini spits vs thousands in ac

    How much will it cost to fix the A/C in your truck? I just went through this myself. I have not gotten the bill yet but I know its going to be high. They said it was going to cost over $4,000 but then they did not have to swap out the evaporator coils. So it will be a little cheaper. I did kick around the idea of putting roof AC in or a mini split but decided against it. I like having the controls right here in the dash. I didn't much like the idea of cutting holes in my truck either.

    I think I would put in a roof AC out of a camper. They are made to travel. If I were going to do it I would get one that has AC and heat.

    My Build

    Grandpa had umbrellas too, He had the deluxe model. The big one that attached to both fenders. We would sit up there as kids. We wore the paint off the fenders straddling the umbrella mount.

    Price of Diesel fuel

    I was just thinking about that. I'm not going to complain about $3 fuel I might squeal al little bit at $4 but I do remember when It was $5. Driving my suburban pulling a little trailer on vacation getting 9 mpg. Everyone makes a big deal about my freightliner. You are only going to get 8 or 9 mpg 10 if you are lucky. So. How is that different than any other vehicle I have? Shoot I only got between 10 and 13 with my Duramax. That was a big disappointment right there. Everyone saying they get 15 towing. HA HA HA Liars.

    My Build

    I just got the quote to fix my air conditioner. its going to be in the $4,000 area. I need everything from the condenser to the evaporator coils. except the compressor. I told him if we are changing everything else just as well do that too. It did squeak a little it. I looked at him and said Well I guess I should have bought a Volvo. He sad No they are ALL junk. (Meaning all trucks are junk no matter the brand). I'm going to have more in this truck than I expected but in the long run I feel its still worth it. Starting to get a little discouraged but that's the way it goes I guess.

    Rust Rust Rust and more Rust

    Well you know what. It is costing more and is more work than I thought it would be. In the long run I will have his truck for a long time. Still way cheaper and safer than a pickup. Hopefully after getting the mechanics and the conversion straightened out I wont have to touch it again.

    Price of Diesel fuel

    Its still just a tick under 3 bucks here in Northeastern Nebraska. Just a little heads up if you are going to be out this way. Do not fuel at Sapp Bros truck stops. They have had bad fuel for the past year or so. I keep hearing more horror stories. Even the Diesel pickup page on Facebook is telling people to stay away and posting pictures of the water in their tanks from Sapps. Last fall it barely got in the 20s and the blended fuel was jelling up already. One of my neighbors had a runaway a few weeks ago. They religiously buy fuel at Sapps. The cause of the runaway was determined to be the fuel. It was full of kerosene.

    Rust Rust Rust and more Rust

    I am dealing with kind of the same. I tried charging my air conditioner. Worked for about 15 minutes. So I took it to a shop a friend of mine owns. Blown line. No big deal he says. Next day I get a call. Its not good Johnny. Not good at all. Every time they take a line apart the next one falls apart. They used steel straps to hold aluminum lines. Steel bolts through aluminum junction blocks. Bolts all twisted off. Last I knew I needed a condenser and all the lines. I hope they don't have to get in the dash or change the box in the sleeper. Its getting pricey fast.
