I have 3 roof vents plus a skylight in the shower which all radiate a lot of heat through them. I fitted all with a block of 2" polyethylene foam to block the heat coming into the TT and help out the 13.5 AC, along with a couple fans to circulate the air. I'll be checking the AC today for any evaporator blockage, filters and any air leaks from the hot to cold side of the air flow

Location, location, location. That is what the wheels are for. That said we were in Vegas last July and the temps were 105 or so. Both A/C units (15k and 13k ducted) ran a lot but keeping the Silverback in the mid 70's was no problem. Check the parks voltage that can lower your a/c's output. Any kind of shade will reduce your solar gain, reflectix, awnings, toppers.

Most RVs are only insulated to R13 and the roof insulation claims are exaggerated based on the reflective film they put in the ceiling gap. I have always been suspect of those numbers. Maybe a bunch of solar panels would shade the roof?
