A/C leaking oil ???

My Dometic A/C leaked some oil onto the roof. From what I have been reading this means that the freon has also leaked out and is not rechargeable. Just checking to see if this is true before buying a new A/C. The A/C has stopped cooling.
Thanks a lot,
SR

The A/C is rechargeable. You can install a couple of clamp-on piercing valves or sweat-on ports. You would also need to repair the leak tho. If you can't do this yourself, probably would be cheaper to just replace it.

I can replace the A/C myself but wouldn't feel comfortable doing the other.
Thanks a lot
