    Yes

    I always keep the suction pressure from the last sytem I worked on in my hoses and manifold; I drain the high side back into the system through the low side so whatever that pressure is stays in the gauges.

    As far as bleding the 6" extension, I use valve core depressors a lot of the time, so when I attach the hose to the depressor I can bled some of the pressure from the gauges at the depressor. This also saves freon burns in those tight places.

    I don't have half the experience of many of you, but I actually use NRP low loss fittings and YJ ball valves. I trust the ball valves a lot more. I read somewhere that someone didn't recommend leaving your manifold full of gas. It slowly stresses out the hoses or something.

    I have an assortment of ball valves, low-loss fittings, adapters, etc. and it seems like the yellow jacket ball valves are the ones I consistently go for.

    What about blow-back from the ones with the ball valves vs. the low loss ones - like when you're unscrewing the hi side hose from the Shrader?

    how is work????????????????????
    Work is cool - Making more money than I ever have, I haven't put in any OT that I didn't ask for, I'm learning something new every day, and I'm enjoying being a little fish in a big pond.

    There's some chiller porn in the "office pictures" thread that I posted.

    Never really been much of a problem for me. Sure, it's a tiny bit more than the "psst" you get from a low-loss, but the fittings are so much more reliable and useful.
