Dometic has a sensor on a wire that is between your fins on the evaporator side. If it senses that the coil is froze up like a block of ice you can't get air flow through it. So the unit shuts down until it defrosts. Then it will start again, the sensor will fall out or give you false readings you need to push it back in the finnes again. It could be out of place and shutting you down even if the coil is not frozen up. Pull your R/A grill off and look up in there, That sensor will go off for being out of placement, and other things if it is set in the right position, things that make a coil freeze are low on freon and dirty air filters. It will also freeze if the outside temp at night is to low and your TT is set to low and you do not have enough heat transfer. (low temp inside and low temp outside.) Your unit can work great at 80 degrees outside being low on freon but you will notice it when the hotter it gets outside, once it starts to freeze you can't stop it until you turn the unit off and just run the fan to help defrost the coil, you will have alot of condensation at that point, that's just the coil defrosting..
