Rear AC Cycle time

My rear AC that mainly cools the bedroom cycles on for 30 seconds and off for about 5 minutes. Of course the front AC runs most of the time with the OAT being in the mid 90's. Not sure where the temp sensor is. The control is in the kitchen area and it controls both AC.

Never been in a Safari but its built by Monaco so I bet its the same
as my Windsor and most likely you have cold air blowing directly on
the sensor .
Mine looks like this .

Might be the run capacitor. Turn off the breaker and pull the hood. There is a metal box with 2-4 different capacitors. Sometimes the capacitor ruptures and its evident it's bad. Be careful capacitors carry a very high current charge after power is removed. Cross the terminals with an insulated screw driver with the breaker off.

Put your warm hand over the sensor and see if the A/C continues to run.

Try opening the vent on the bottom of the air conditioner that allows the cold air to blow directly down at the floor instead of going out the vents.

If it blowing on a sensor that should affect it.

Live in E TN and temps bumping 90's daily.

I have one sensor in the front the same as in the picture, this controls the front AC. The second sensor is actually in the thermostat itself which is located in the bedroom.

I alternate between both AC units, during the day I run the bedroom an at night run the front (yup, I know this seems odd). During the day with the bedroom AC running it seems to keep the coach reasonably cool, I set the fan on auto. At night visa versa but set the fan on low, I don't hear the compressor cycling on and off this way.

I've checked the cooling with a thermo gun, both AC's seem to be doing what they should.
