Angry Dometic 15000 a/c not cooling

Bought our 2014 wildwood 33bhok in 2013. A/c ran great till this year. Can hear compressor kick in, but still won't cool like it used to. Now it struggles to even get to the same temperature outside. Did everything that I could blew out coils, resealed indoor vent at unit and still no difference. Fan motor runs, a little condensation off the unit but really no change. I would it would last longer than
Three years. Was going to look at capacitors tomorrow. But I shouldn't have to shell out another grand because they made an inferior product. Any help would be nie Thanks Kelly

Call Dometic and see if yours falls under the bad built units.They (Chinese)built a whole butt load of bad unit starting with the '14 year builds.You might get lucky and they cover it.It had something to do with them going to high pressure freon and the factory didn't use the right flux on solder joints.Or so I was told by my tech.

Update

Took the camper to the closet dealer which was only 45miles away.
They were very helpful. I made the appt. for today. And I dropped it
Off. I had some other things to do. I told them to take as long as they needed it
Before I left town I stopped by and the said it was cooling good. But wanted
To see what it would do after an hour. So I went to get something to eat
And came back and they it was the compressor because it was hotter inside
than outside after they let it sit. They figure it's low on freon. And it's a 2013 China model. So the service manager was going to help as much as he could.
I'll let him try and see what goes from there. I was just happy they got to it right
Away. So I brought it home. And we will see what happens. And the service manager is very aware of the problems they had with they. I'll post as soon as I know.
