Starcool refrigarant leak?

Stepped outside this morning after a 25'F cold snap last night to find a small spot of green liquid below the RF bumper. The fluid was leaking from a small hole in a crimped hose fitting by the solenoid.
Is this a vent of some kind or some very orderly corrosion?
If I have to service the AC, who is the best Starcool shop in the Mid Alantic region?
Thanks GH

How about nobody! SMB North won't touch it neither will my local mechanic or two RV shops in the area. Thanks for all the replies.

I bought my van with the starcool not working. These starcool manuals helped the RV shop I used understand what was involved and get it repaired.

I'm on the west coast so can't recommend anyone, sorry.

I just would look for some kind of mobile air repair that works on semi's and similar. It's really a basic system.

The manual was right there on the passenger seat. It turns out my neighbor is an AC specialist for a local dealership. He can evacuate the system for me. I'm either going to tool up and replace the hoses myself or just cap off the Starcool system connections and pull the whole mess out. It doesn't seem like a commercial shop wants anything to do with this system, including the shop that installed it.
