If you search around here there is a thread from someone that modified the airr supply duct part of the system (shaving styrofoam better into a taper for better airflow) there might be some information there to help.

Have you opened up the vents on the underside of the air conditioner? The ducting is very restrictive, so I always open those vents to let the air conditioner breath as freely as possible.
You also must remember that your camper is a big, poorly insulated box, and is not easy to cool at the best of times.
How big is your camper? Did you get the larger air conditioner?

Increase ac vent air flow by 75%

try the above. see if that works.

Ours is 40 foot and the same situation. I figure it's just too darn hot to cool that big boy down when it's over 100 outside and close to that inside before trying to cool it off. At first we wondered if ac wasn't working properly but our first night in it and we froze bc it got so cold. This extreme heat is hard on any ac. I suggest reading the modification link the previous guys are referring to. It can help.
