There's also a solenoid on the throttle body that should kick the idle up when the AC is on. If the idle isn't increasing you may have a bad solenoid or some bad wiring.

+1 for Gates. Almost all of the hoses in my truck were replaced with new Gates ones in 2012. They've been holding up fine.

Man, I've come a long way in auto knowledge since 2013 lol.

One of my little hood vent thingies flew off while going ~70mph on the highway. Gave me quite a scare when that hit the window. I tried to find it but I have no idea where it went. Sad times.
