    Hello all, New Sea Ray owner here!
    Wife and I recently bought a 1991 420 Sundancer. Everything thing is in pretty decent condition for her age but the forward AC stopped blowing cold air yesterday. AC runs good and no noises but now no cold air. First, where is the forward AC located? I downloaded a parts manual for the boat but don't see the AC locations?
    Second, can I evac the unit and recharge?
    Thanks!

    Should be under V berth. Sometimes throwing money at old units is not worth it. Replace with new, if you can do it yourself, you are looking at $1500. It a few wires and 2 hoses. A few hours.

    Behind the drawer unit in the aft cabin. Floor panel with lift strap in aft cabin closet floor will give you access to the compressor unit.
