The AC on my 22 SE 2.0 works fine when it’s cool or in the shade. But seemed insufficient when it was in the 80s the other day. Family and I were sweating the entire trip and everyone was pissed. Not sure how it will handle TX summers.
Also notice a hissing sound whenever the ac kicks in. Bought it in Dec, so didn’t notice it until this weekend.
Took it to the dealer this morning and sure enough they say it works fine. They said they will check for a leak, just in case and might have to do an evac and refill. Will have to wait and see what they come up with.

Got it back in the evening. I was discouraged by their initial assessment, that everything was fine. But seems like it was low on refrigerant. So they did an evac and nitrogen leak test. Found a leak near the receiver drier and replaced it. Kudos to the dealer for due diligence. Seems to be working fine so far.
