Clear hose in any boat system can be a disaster.

Clear hose allows light to enter , .

In Fresh water it will grow green stuff ,that you get to drink,

in sea water amazing stuff still grows but it is darker.

It costs more in time and is slower to install but copper tubing , or heavy sea water rated hose is a better long term choice.

Good point Fred- but these run through the bilge so no light to enter. Copper sounds rugged and would flow well until it began to get marine growth. On our boat- and most I suspect- the supply and discharge hoses are too buried to actually remove one end and set up a circular flush.
Man- on the cross section of hose I posted, I had made every attempt I could mechanically to clean the hose. Straightened curves, high pressure water, etc.
I was amazed it had THAT much obstruction !

Note the barnacles in the picture are alive and well in the solid blue hose. As with a lot ofvthings that can clog an A/C line, they don't care that much about light, as long as they have fresh food being pumped to them they will be happy.

After a few days of running without issue we can update this saying it's been fixed. The problem was in the relay box between the AC pump and the two compressors.

We'll see....
New air handler solved the problem as expected. Nice and cool now! Wallet a bunch lighter though....
