Default got a leak in my ac

Well, twice now I have had to recharge my ac, and after about a week its blowing warm again. As soon as I put sum refridgerant in, the compressor kicks on, so I know its working, and blows cold for about a week and its done. I put the dye in, but couldn't find any obvious leaks. Any common spots that these trucks like to leak?

did you use a blacklight? some very minor leaks may not be visable to the naked eye and will show up under the blacklight.

Yes, they are famous for the evaporator leaking. My Dad kept getting his recharged at the dealer. They said they couldn't find a leak. Then he took it to a local mechanic and the guy just laughed and said it was the evap, that they all go bad in a few years. He was going to fix it for Dad untill he asked Dad if by chance he had extended warranty. Yep, with less than a month till it ran out. He told Dad not to let them recharge it again, they were just trying to get the warranty to run out. He took it to a different dealer and they were super. Confirmed it was the evap and fixed it no charge. By the way, my Dad passed away in 2004, and I've had the truck since, no more trouble, Joe.
