    It is factory. We discussed oil trapping when they installed pressure switches on their trainers. And then a manufacturer throws that in our face.:banghead:

    If this cabinet uses 404a and POE replace the cap tube. Like pecmsg said check the box for recommended drier size. On another note, I used soft solder on coiled tubing on slide out units so the tubing does not kink after several pull outs of unit for service. Suction filters mostly.

    This is just an opinion but undersized filter drier should have no effect on the performance of the system. If like you said the line size is the same and it doesn't restrict the flow. Manufactures ship out units with undersized driers everyday. The one thing I see that pisses me off is 2 LL driers in the same spit system. One outside and one at the evap. WTF
