    But How Do I Service The Unit

    Ok, so I pull up on a call today, customer saying his system would not cool. As I pulled in the driveway I see this (see photo) , I knocked on the door, and told him to call someone else, he actually had the nerve to ask why I would not do the call.

    Seen a lot of them in the past, common on construction trailers. Can only hope Intertherm meant them that way and the comp is pointing up

    I would have serviced it
    I bet the compressor is inside next to the furnace
    or if it was a bad compressor you could have sold them a new system

    Why did you walk off again?
    I remember my first day,It was fun!

    Our company doesn't service anything attached to a trailer (modular home for you high class rednecks.)
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    Best part of a day is learing something new. What if all they needed was a capacitor. You could have handled that, right?

    Nice picture. Did you read the directions or just figure the camera out? Sorry don't mean to hammer you, but my boss would have loved to send me on a call like that. And when I drove up and saw that antique I would smile and think, "I am going to figure this son of a bi@@@ out and try to make it purr like a kitten or........sell them a new unit." But either way, in my position, I love seeing something crazy......besides the family that lives in the trailer.

    Then you would have fired me a long time ago. I'll walk away from anything that is a health and/or safety hazzard. I'm a grown MAN and will be treated as so. I don't care if you own the place or not, a little respect goes a long way. Screw you and your my way or highway, you're just a bully.

    What am I missing here. Is that a regular condensing unit, a side discharge unit, or a tripple split?

    That unit looks like it's made to be a side discharge from you're picture. Sometimes jobs are not as bad as they seem when you roll up on them.

    What did you tell your boss when you refused the call?

    I agree and I also think you give up too easily. I'M sure the family that lives in that trailer appreciates the fact that you didn't even try to help them with a problem they asked you to help them with.

    What would you think about a mechanic that refused to work on your van because its not a mercades?

    If you dont like getting your hands dirty you should get a job in a office.
