Expecially the yellow hose. It's threads may have a groove in them just for purging any air out of the line before charging.
With my manifold setup, I can use the vacuum pump to draw down all of the lines right up to the quick connectors and to the 30lb bottle of r134. This may not be possible with the various manifold setups and their configurations, but take a look at yours and see if it's possible.

On edit- Jeff I see you're in NNJ- you're welcome to borrow my rig. I'm in 10598
