What is the problem with the A/C?
The gray tank has some sort of debris on the gage. Use site gage cleaner; poured this down the sink drain and fill the tank to 2/3 full. Then drive around to swish the tank and clean it. Dump at a camp site and the gages should be cleaned.

AC and gray tank gauge

Some times when the temp is in the 90s it will not cool my camper.I have only had it since March and made 4 trips only 1 time has it cooled. I had my camper basically the same every time. Why would the gray tank just do thus once in a while.

Ok how large of a camper; is there just one A/C? Also what are you trying to cool down to.

Some times with just one A/C it may take three to four hours to cool down the camper after being closed up in 90 Deg. weather.

Like I said this is debris on the site gage read out and the tank needs to be cleaned.

This is simply you do wash dishes and your face and hands with soap? Will this will lead to debris forming in the waste water holding tanks. Not everything will drain out when the tank is emptied. This left over debris will cover the gage sensors in the tank (my wife refers to this as soap scum). Thus showing that your tank is either 1/3 or 2/3 full. When water is placed in the tanks the debris may or may not be washed off of the sensors every time.

This is why I stated you need to use a cleaning product in the holding tanks every once in awhile.

Now with your A/C it maybe a 13,500 BTU unit which on a 80 Deg. day could cool your trailer but it will take time. At 90+ day this may take all day to cool the camper. You also need to help by blocking the sunlight from entering the trailer and warming it up more than required. Use reflective panels and some additional curtains to help. Plus use a fan to move the air around in your unit. We travel with two fans all of the time in our unit to help with the cooling plus the two A/C units that we have.
