10’ of copper tubing to cool the discharge air? Brilliant! Any leaks at the fittings due to vibration?
They're all 37° JIC flared connections. I'm sure that it's possible, but I've never seen one or it's AN twin work loose. I keep expecting the copper to work harden from vibration and crack, but so far that hasn't happened.
Hello ntsqd nice clean looking install. My first thought about the copper is looking like a condensate trap. Might be wrong not an engineer. Have always seen the bleed at the lowest point. Lg compressor’s use a radius tube but don’t think I’ve seen loops.
Eventually that will be an issue, but the bulkhead on the tab at the compressor base is nearly the low point. Cracking a tube nut there will discharge any accumulation. No more of an effort than draining the tank on occasion.
Anyway, my point was that there is a LOT of wasted space under a pick-up bed and with a little thought it can be reclaimed.
