    Picture would suggest it started with an obstructed metering device or partial loss of charge. I suppose it could be airflow as well and it froze back to the metering device...but I'd be popping the orifice out for a look before I walked away.
    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.

    It was shrubs in the drain line. It was at the end of summer right after flood condition monsoon storm . System is fine TXV was good as well as charge took half the day to defrost to but it has been fine ever since. I have a few more pics it was frozen all the way to compressor. The RV was encased in ice I felt like I was on a excavation lol.

    if you do something with the rv wires it would defrost in about 10 to 20 minutes. I do not know why people won't put a frozen indoor coil into the heat mode to thaw out instead of leaving it to do on it's own. Providing it is not straight cool.

    I'm having trouble reconciling a plugged drain causing a frozen coil.

    Bad drain line caused the coil to freeze over? I'm not following, but I am intrigued. Please explain!
