A/c freezing up on 36qbok

My camper is less than a year old and the ac units are always freezing up. Any idea what is causing it? I can open the quick cool vent and it will usually defrost. They are both factory units. I am glad I got that second year warranty because the camper will be a year old in May.

Ex (we owned an A/C dealership for 20 years) always said three things cause a freeze up;

1. Stat turned below 68*
2. Dirty filter preventing air flow
3. Low on Freon

Sounds like the vents are closed off. Maybe to redirect air to a hot spot or your running the air when it's cooler out causing head pressure change. The direct dump removes the possibility of a bad ac.

The vents on mine you can't close off, they are all open. It is right at 70 here today but the sun was causing it to get 80 in the camper so I cut the ac on too cool it down .

I don't think it is cycling like it should be. Where should the temp probe be? In the return are side or the air duct side?

Your looking for around 15+ on a day in the 70s. Keep in mind it takes some time for RV air to be at max cool temp.

What are the symptoms of an air conditioner freezing up? I don't think the ones on my 36qb have - they've performed pretty well, but I'm not 100% positive that I would know. If you can explain, I can tell you if I've experienced the same or not.

It looks like another member had similar issues (different camper):
