Dometic non ducted ac not cooling

I just purchased a 2013 261bhxl wildwood x-lite. We took it camping last weekend for first trip to get familiar with it.

When we turned on the AC, it only cools on high and only for about 10 minutes before switching to fan. It was about 80 degrees inside and 78 outside. Seemed the internal thermostat was not calibrated?

Is this something I am doing wrong or can fix easily or do I need to bring it to dealer?

Thermostats in campers are notoriously off by several degrees. Just get a good thermometer and place by the thermostat and set the thermostat accordingly or go to Walmart and buy a thermostat. Honeywell Basic Digital Thermostat: Heating, Cooling, & Air Quality : Walmart.com

My AC is a ceiling mount and I think the thermostat is behind intake filter. I have a thermostat on wall. But I think it only controls heat.

Can you adjust the thermostat on a ceiling mounted AC?

I turn one dial to ac low or high and the other has 3 temp options . Even on high /high it cuts to fan as if it hit temp yet it was 80 degrees inside and about 78 outside??

You may have to take the bottom cover off and find the temp sensor tube and move it. Trying to remember how our units worked.

That's what I was thinking . It's right behind intake filter.
