Wildwood AC won't keep up...

2016 Wildwood 27RLSS that we've owned for 6 months---last couple of days spent on the Colorado River near Parker AZ and found that the AC unit (15,000 BTU) can't seem to keep up with outside temps----Started yesterday at 78 degrees inside and by 1 PM when the outside temp had reached 107 --- the inside of the RV was 101-----seems it ought to do a better job than that? Or is it just so undersized from FR that it can't keep up? (1st pic is outside temp, 2nd is inside--both with thermostat set at 78---last is wife's attempt to keep one of the cockers cool!)

Check the temperature difference (Delta-T) between the intake and return. It should be about 15 to 20F.

Also while you're at it, check the partition between them to make sure it's sealed well.

Doesnt seem like your cooling at all. On our concord we have one 15,000 btu and when 110 ambeant outside best it could do was 83-84. I added another 13,500 on top of bedroom now it can be 115 outside and coach will cool 68 - 73. Pretty much what ever wife wants. But id bet your not cooling at all. Mabey compressor or lack of freon
