Brief Description: Flightline Air Conditioning Condenser Fit/Temp Ins
This weekend (Jan 26, 2013) I decided to work on the Flight Line Air Conditioning Condenser and associated wiring. I spent several hours attaching the condenser to the mounting tray (only took a couple of minutes) and then spent most my time on the electrical connection from the condenser fan to the Relay and then down to the power source. I epoxied some wire attach point to the carbon fiber plenum to help with wire management. I mounted the relay to the tray since the wires from the power wire from the condenser fan can connect directly to the rely without being lengthened. I then routed the ground wire from the condenser and power wire from the relay to the power block below both of them.
I worked on routing the control wire from the Flight Line AC controller thru the fuselage from Front to aft. I have yet to terminate any of these wires since placement of the evaporator is not known yet. I am still awaiting my shipment of the evaporator and hope to receive it this week so I can start work installing it.
I spent many hours trying to figure out the proper location for the AC low and high pressure hose thru the firewall. This is frustrating since every location seems to have interference since I mounted a firewall battery and contractor up there. To add frustration, I don’t have the proper oriented hose fitting I would like to use for the install. The bag sent includes a bunch of angled fitting but I have no technical data to substantiate where they go. I will contact Flight Line and see what I can figure out.
