You can use clear vinyl hose to sleeve the thermostat wire, and wire tie it to either the liquid or vapor line to protect it from animals, including people with weed whackers.

I suggested she just have a small fence built, about 5' wide from the side of the home to the fence line, to keep that area seperated from the dog.

Probabaly not. Her thought was to chain up the dog. We've had a record 20 days of over 100 degree temps here and as it is the dog is in the back yard all alone and so my first thought was chaining her up would be cruel so instead just put up a barrier.

Hopefully has not been using the unit to do his business on, thinking that it needs watered. Some Green garden barrier fence would be easier, than a permanent fence. Even something like a kennel that is one of those that are panels, would even be better.

I've seen that before, the urine just eats away the coil but this is a female dog so no dirty business on the condenser. She's really sweet, just needs more attention and chew toys, me thinks.

I quit using all that fancy low loss stuff. I have hoses with ball valves in them. Just remove the hose off the liquid line the old way..push the hose into the fitting and unscrew.
