Is my system overcharged according to your figures above Mike? It doesn't make sense to me for it to be overcharged. If you guys (Mike) don't see this I'll start a new thread but sometimes old threads get more attention.

Normally when the HS gets too high is cause of a blockage.

Was that with the AC an max?

Great, not what I wanted to hear. I don't have the vac with me, darn it. Those reading are at max, high idle and after about five minutes of running. I pulled the camper about 20 miles and it would only work when not under a heavy pull. When stopped it would click on and off. After about a hour it would stay running and that's when I put the gauges on.

A little side note, I couldn't get the HS fitting on and was at a loss as to way. I finally figured it out, when I took the cap off the plug inside stayed in the valve and left a hole in the top of the cap. I used a needle point from a light tester, a little bit of light drilling and got it out. Then after I put the gauges away and walked back to the truck I heard it leaking. Put the gauges on again and took the picture. The first time I had them on the HS was up to 340 so I guess I have a blockage.

Thanks for your help Mike. Would that reading be OK because I was using high idle??

When the HS gets to hight it will shut the compressor down to prevent damage

OK, thanks. After 205K its time for a overhaul.

What usually gets blocked, is it a little screen in there, seems like I read that?

Orifice tube could be stopped up but if it the orifice is stopped up that means debris came from somewhere.

The last one I seen clogged was cause of metal shavings coming out of the compressor
