The Air Cond in the Fleetwood had lost its edge.

I took it to a guy last Wednesday, he reckoned the gas level was fine, but it could be one of two valves playing up.
These are a really complex system huh.... 1st year of the Climate Control Air Conditioning.

To do either valve, would require the removal of the bonnet and R/H hinge.  :-[

To his credit, guy #1 didn't charge me anything and was as helpful as he could be.

Took the car to guy # 2 this morning, showed him the valves in question, but I said to him, same as I did to guy # 1, I have a gut feeling, its lost some gas.

Guy #2, said, he thought the gas was going to ok as well, but gave it a touch up.

HOLY CRAP.... straight back to 6 degrees at the vents again.
Robbie refused any money..... I ended up stuffing a $50 note in his top pocket.

Ipswich City Auto Electrical, Flint street Ipswich.... Robbie was terrific.

There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

I heard about this on the news today. Also heard he may face charges for going too close to a whale!

2 actually, potentially $26,900 for "interfering with shark control nets", and $1300 for going too close to the whale.

Recon you're right on that call, but they'll still threaten him with it to discourage others from doing the same. There's about $10k been pledged on a gofundme page to cover his fines, wonder what happens to that money if he doesn't get fined?

Yep, ya spot on about scaring folks about doing it again.

Christ knows why, some nimrod would start a go fund me before  he even gets fined.
Be interesting to see where/who the money ends up with.

It's up to $15k now, but apparently will be donated to whale research if not required - https://www.gofundme.com/f/tinny-man

It's why I usually only buy from an aussie site that says delivery in approx 1 to 1 and 1/2 weeks. Doesn't mean they are aussies, but at least they have a rello who has stock in a garage or warehouse in Australia.!!
Installed one last year......I personally just jump into bed and jump out next morning, but the missus loves it .
