bought new last year 09-32 qbbs, recent trip for two weeks and had trouble with the ac, it froze up almost every night and would trip the braker during the daytime if outside temp went much over 100f. It once locked up for about 24hrs then started working again. I have done all the obvious.. freeze switch location, sealed air return, keep doors open, clean filters, kept thermostat at 70f. I am still under warranty and dealer is scheduled to look at it....anybody??

You have the thermostat on 70, what are you an Eskimo? The compressor has to have a chance to cycle. Only suggestion I have at the moment, is try to step down in temp. Start with 80, once the compressor cycles once or twice, then 78, wait again on things to catch up, then 76, and so on. Also close blinds and curtains in the trailer to help with cooling. Of course if it wasn't freezing up before in the same circumstances, and it is now, it has a problem, and will need to be serviced.

" What are you? Eskimo's" I don't see where they are located so maybe.. Naw.... I lived in Alaska and we don't even have air conditioning.
