We were camping in southern Ohio a couple of years ago when it was very hot and humid. Our air was working well until I turned it down. It began to freeze up, and actually froze solid because the condensation froze when the compressor was cycling. Lesson learned: if it is very hot and humid, leave the air on max and the blower on high!

That is very unusual; normally the best settings for "hot and humid" is to set the thermostat for 10 degrees below outside air temp up to 100 degrees and leave it at 90 for temps above that. Set the blower on FAN or HIGH.

The air conditioner MUST cycle to not freeze up in high humidity so the water will drain and not freeze on the cold coils. Once the camper's interior air is "dry", you can walk the temp back down some.
