A/C

26RL Grey Wolf. A/C has run 95% of our camping trip. It's been a scorcher. Unit doesn't quite cool it down but it's tolerable. Noticed at night it brought temp down, shut off maybe 5 seconds came back on for less than a minute. Then did same thing. Next morning as it warmed up it wouldn't come on. Had to turn thermostat completely off, I guess, to reset. It came back on and has done this 3 times. No tripped switch. Any ideas. Thanks.

Between the rapid AC cycling at night and its general behavior I'd guess the thermostat is acting up.

if inside temp gets to within 5 degrees of set temp, it shuts down for a few seconds, then comes back on at low fan speed instead of high. Maybe this is what it was doing, changing fan speeds.

Do you have registers at the AC discharge? Is your AC ducted in the ceiling? I have both, I close the AC registers during the evening hours and open them during the sunny hours. Additionally, we use silver bubble shades on all windows. Your AC maybe freezing over causing a shutdown. I also close all doors during day. Some say your AC will only cool to within 15-20 degrees below outside temps. Stay thirsty myfriend

I will recommend buying a thermometer that measures between 40 degrees to 150 degrees, or something close. It needs to have a 6" probe also. Check the outgoing air temp at the A/C holding the thermometer there for five minutes. You should have a reading of 52 +/- 2. IF you have ducted air check all registers also for same reading. IF your unit is less than 2 years old and your A/C is a Domestic brand you may have an A/C unit that was undercharged at the factory.
