AC unit

I have a 2016 catalina coachmen sbx, .
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get your AC unit to keep your trailer cool? I have put up the black out curtains up, but there is only about a 9 degrees difference.
My unit is roof top, and is 15,000 btu. I was looking a stronger AC roof top, but all I was able to find was the same as mine, which puts out 15,000 btu.
My trailer is hooked up to 30 amp.
Please send some help, thanks.

pull the return air grill and look to see that some of the ducting has not come loose allowing warm air to bypass. You may try opening the vents on the sides of the unit to get max air flow. Also start the unit before the trailer starts heating up just a few ideas

Make sure your warm air to cold air divider hasn't came loose.

Also if you open the quick cool dump is the air "cold"?

Where would that be located?
My duck system does not let enough cold air out in the back of my trailer or the front, just in the middle.
I'm thinking of putting in a upgraded AC unit,

I don't see any vents on my slides.

It's at your a/c.
Return and supply are right next to each other on the ceiling plate.

Very possible!
Mine had are flow on one side of the camper, albeit low and zero flow on the side with the divider plate that had pulled away.

Zero sealing tape around the divider plate whatsoever!

This is the second camper I've had this happen to.
