Ac cycling

I have a Coleman 15k ac unit that was cycling cold then cool. Drooped the cover and Found the return air/ supply air separator board wasnít in correct position.
Put it back together correctly, works well. They make a Styrofoam insert that. Helps with air Flow and noise. Rv airflow is the name I think.

I had the same short cycle problem with my dometic thermostat and ac in my A Frame. I replace the thermostat with the easy touch rv thermostat a few months ago. Been working fantastic, no more short cycles or leaving fan running.
My review is in the A Frame section on this forum.
i tried to insert link to my article, but Iím stupid, so just paste it,

As you compose message, the little 'globe' with the chain link is what you click, then cut and paste link into it.

RockyMountainMarty is correct. I had same issue and re-taped the return and supply plenum in the camper behind the air filter.

Fixed my issue.

I put in 4 thermostats, they changed the ac unit 4 times, just leave the fan on low not auto. There is a company that makes a mod for air flow and says it helps with cycling, it's called RV Airflow Systems. I haven't tried it but looks promising.
