A/C Problems

My A/C is only keeping my travel trailer 20 degrees cooler than what it is out side. For example, it's 100 degrees outside and it 85 degrees inside, any suggestion to whats going on here?

AC systems can only pull the temp down about 20* at a time, depending on how yours in insulated or the size AC unit you have it might not be able to keep up or it might take a long time to cool the interior down fully.

My old TT with poor insulation and a single 13.5K AC would never keep up even if it was on from the beginning of the day, 80-85* during the day when it was 95* or so with direct sun.

Now, depending on your outlet temps you may need to see about it getting serviced. The outlets should be able to spit out 40-45* if measured directly at the closest vent, after running for 20 minutes.
