Mach III 13.5

New camper.......picked it up last September........used the ac the first time in April. While we were using it to get some condensation out of the camper.....the ac seemed to bog down, I figured it was freezing up due to outside temp being only 65 degrees. It would bog down until I changed it to fan only then turn it back on would run fine then bog back down after about 30 mins. I figured it was freezing up again and just stopped using it. Fast forward to this past weekend while at the ac. You can turn the thermostat and hear it click off and on......when it clicks on you can hear the compressor hum but not kick in. Fan blows fine........I haven't checked with Airexcel yet being it's Sunday....but I'm hoping it's just a capacitor for the compressor. Anybody have some sure fire troubleshooting techniques for narrowing it down?......I have not taken the outside cover off yet but am experienced in the inside being I had to replace a fan motor on our previous popup.

Capacitor checked out fine......voltage at compressor while running checked out fine. It was determined that the ac had lost its charge.........being replaced under warranty.
