The freon is a sealed system. If it is low on charge then there is a leak that will need repaired and the correct charge replaced. The equipment and environmental regulations make that a job for the pros. Sorry not a DIY. Reduced capacity is either low charge or failing compressor.

I have a 2004 f 150 lariat and my AC doesnt work I turn it on and it shuts off and keeps doing that any ideas

It sounds like you may be low on Freon or have a bad lowpressure switch. The outside temperature can sometimes affect when the A/C will work. If it is near freezing outside, the A/C may not stay on constant, just cycle.

You can switch the lowpressure switch easily without losing Freon. If changing the switch does not help, you need to add Freon. It is best to check for leaks and you really do not know how long the new Freon will take to leak out. Your truck is 6 years old and only needs Freon now. What you add can last another 6 years or 6 minutes depending on the leak.

There are gauges you can borrow from Autozone or Oreillys or a number of independent stores and they are called Manifold gauges. There are also products with leak detectors and stopleak that you add through the Freon fittings. You can do some of the work with the fittings on the new cans and eliminate the gauges, it depends on what you buy.

I would replace the lowpressure switch and see what happens. Then add a can of Freon with stopleak and see how long that lasts you. At some point you will need to determine how much pressure is in the system(how full) and top it off.

I would think your RV repairman could add refrigerant. Any heat and air company could do this for you. The unit does not have service valves in it and a port will need to be added. I have seen these units 30 years old and still holding the original charge. It is impossible to say how long it will last. If you need to add refrigerant more than once a year you have a serious leak that needs repaired.

If your going to have all the freon taken out,this current tech needs to find the leak.

Clearly from what you have said the unit has a freon leak.Freon is put in by ounces or pounds depending on the size of the unit,then you need to get the correct operating pressures.Coils do not go bad they either get full of dirt or get a hole in them.

An 8 yr old unit is a tough call,surley a new one will probably save some electric and come with a warranty.I would get some quotes on a new one,then see how much i could spend.

Massage said low ref ac off what dose that mean thanks

that means low refrigerant available and the low pressure switch is preventing the compressor from damaging itself. You will need freon added to the system which in not uncommon since mobile a/c systems normally leak a small amount each year and eventually need topped off to work properly. Either buy some freon from a parts store or find an independant repair shop that will agree to just add the freon necessay to make the system work again. Freon necessary on most systems ranges from 1 to 2 pounds and freon bought in bulk by all shops costs $3 a pound and labor to do this is about a half hour so look at their labor rate and add a reasonable profit for the freon and this is what it should cost. If this helps please reply cause that helps me and good luck
