Dometic AC for 2013 Solera 24M

What is the style for this AC unit? So I can replace filter, and get a manual. It runs well, and then it shuts down and then starts again in a few seconds. Is that what is supposed to happen? Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you

...don't know style ("Model"?), but you might remove the ceiling panel...maybe just the part that may house the filter & get the #s that should be inside. RE the "shut down/re-start" -- yes, IF you have the touch (true) thermostat and if it's programmed for "auto". Sorry I can't offer more detail -- maybe someone is nearby who'll have a Solera like yours & can answer soon.

Don't know your model but typically a Dometic will stop momentarily and revert to low fan speed when within about 4 of set temp with fan set to AUTO (AU).

Remove filter cover and filter. The unit tag is in the area above the filter.

As far as the cycling, change the thermostat setting one or two degrees in either direction. That should take care of the cycling.

I would also be interested to hear if anyone has found a solution to the cycling on and off problem. We seldom run our ac at night because it is constantly turning on and off. It's very annoying! I was about to try a different thermostat, but not sure that will help.

Thermostat on the wall or a knob on the air box?

If you are asking me; thermostat on the wall. One more thing that can affect cycling is having a ceiling ac vent pointing toward the thermostat.

The control on the thermostat is it a slide. Does the thermostat have any lights (led).

The cycling on and off was continually waking me during the night. I merely changed the fan setting from auto to low and/or high and it acts during the night as white noise. The AC cycles on and off as usual, but because the fan is constantly on, it is not noticeable.
