Penguin 2 ac stopped cooling.

Last week wife was preparing the 2013 v cross vibe 6504 for a week long trip. She turned the ac(Dometic penguin 2 13,500) on to cool rv since was 85 outside, the breaker popped, after that, the ac won't cool, you can hear fan full speed, then it slows some like the compressor is trying to kick in, then goes back to full fan speed, but no cooling. I discovered this when I was at the campsite on 30amp service. This is first issue with the ac we ever had. Thinking, the 15amp wasn't enough at home, so now thinking maybe the start capacitor went out. I want to order a cap or hard start and cap or not sure if I need both. Want to try this first, worst case I have spares. Any good suggestions on what to get? I seen supco E hard start caps, but hard to find info, if i need that and a regular capacitor. Or is there something else I should be looking at.
