Cool AC issues + other repairs

Our SMB (2006 Ford E350 EB50) has a split AC system. We've had several issues which up to recently have been resolved - Replacing the interior unit, overhaul of engine unit, etc. - however our local mechanics have run into a wall, it seems there is a leak in the system they have not been able to find, partly because their lifts don't have the capacity to lift the van (my opinion) but also they are not AC experts albeit being excellent mechanics.
At 12 years of age, our SMB is in need of some general RV related repairs, but we are looking for a good and honest RV mechanic in S. Florida.
Any suggestions, please? We are willing to travel to mechanic in S. Florida, within reason...
Thanks in advance!

Is the in the Ford factory system? Or aftermarket like Starcool or Danhard.

Did they install a reman compressor previously? I've had bad luck with those. New Ford/Denso/Delphi is the way to go.

Thanks carringb!
We have the Panhard system, which they (Panhard) replaced at no charge, even tho it was out of warranty already and have not had any further issues w/the equipment itself. Both house and engine components have been working fine until the leak started.

Look for a shop that does limo bus fleet work.
I found a local shop through this site.
