    I don't think it will hurt it but i don't see what will be the benefit of it either. The reason I say that is because the rest of the other components are not insulated(lines, etc) and these engine bays get really hot.

    I'm not saying there is a benefit I just never heard of it without insulating the whole system.

    and NO QUESTION is stupid on this site.

    doesn't really matter either way . suction lines and dryer / receivers are insulated to prevent condensation where its not wanted like inside the wall of your house . the freon has already passed through your evaporator and is on its way back to the compressor to be compresses into a high temp , high pressure gas . the receiver / dryer is more of a receiver than a dryer. the desiccant inside is really a one shot deal and if the system is left open it should be replaced . the receiver part of it is to insure that the compressor gets a steady stream of gas and not liquid , as we all know you cant compress a liquid ! so i would just let it be as if it starts slugging liquid back to the compressor you might ruin it
