Dodge Ram AC question

2 posts in this topic

So, what are the signs of low refridgerant? My AC seems to work fine for about 20-30 mins then gets warm and muggy. Then I shut it off for about 15 mins and turn it on and it works fine. What gives?

three questions

1. What year and motor?

2. Does it seem like there is a reduced flow of air out of the vents?

3. When it starts to blow "warm and muggy" have you checked to see if the compressor is still engaged?

3. When was the last time it was serviced?

3. Have you noticed if you temp gauge seems to be hotter than usuall?

3. does it have manuel or automatic climate control (i'm not even sure if they offer auto climate in the ram but if they do and yours does have it I may have the solution.

If it was low on refridgerant it shouldn't get real cold or cool at all. I suspect that the compressor has stopped running when you start to feel it getting warm. Could this be caused by an overcharge of the system (a/c is not my fortay and niether is spelling as you can tell grin.gif)?

Heres something to try instead of turning it off for 15 minutes leave it on and see if it starts to cool again in about 15 minutes. I have a feeling it won't.

Get back to us with the answers to the "3" question and we'll see if we can't get it figured out!!

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
