    This may apply to motorhomes but it relates to a problem I have with my 2 year old car. When I had it serviced a while ago I mentioned the air con was working correctly. The dealer rang me later to say it had lost all the gas so it would be repaired under warranty.
    I'm only mentioning this because the dealer said since late 2013 all cars have been using a new gas (HF0123yf) in air con units which replaced the old R134a. A typical re-gas or top up using the old R134a costs about £45 but on the new gas systems a recharge would cost in the region of £200 as the gas is 5 times more expensive. I'm not sure if this applies to motorhome cab chassis since 2013 but has anyone had a re-gas using the new gas.
