Sometimes the unit just needs a little extra boost, to open it up. And I'm making problems that aren't their. Ie. ( o their moisture in the system. ect..)
    None of that makes ANY sense.

I have seen guys add freon to a perfectly charge system because suction was low (txv was closing). Before charging a system always check to see if it's a piston (charge using superheat) or txv (charge using subcool).
    I'd add to this that you should check BOTH on either type of system to fully check the system's operation.
