    This is amazing. He's actually asleep in the van. Just called the owner, who also happens to be his brother, to see if he can call him to wake him up. I've never seen this before.

    Compressor is free, I'm just paying labor and other parts, refrigerant, etc. Which is still very expensive. Adding another two hours plus on top of everything isn't going to help.

    Thank you for all of the help. Does 7 hours sound reasonable? He originally said 4-5 hours, but the estimate says 7. Is that just there to cover himself in case of unforseen difficulties?
