My dash AC blows cold sitting still in drive or park. Never been serviced. Did I just jinx myself.

Might want to take a look at where your condensor and fan is located.
Mine is up front with electric fan, so rear vs side radiator should not affect it.

Yep, that is not good. When I serviced mine last year due to not cooling properly.
Had system evacuated, replaced the desicant dryer cleaned the lines and replaced the expansion valve. Vacuumed system down checked for leaks.
Then filled using the specs (3.5 pounds) from the Mfg which was on the firewall. System cooled as it should after that.

Too much or not enough will both cause poor performance.

Make sure your condencer is clean on both sides and the fan is moving air.
Our condencer is just behind the front axle and that fan screams like a banshee! We have COLD dash air!

The evaporator is next to the radiator, but aren't all condensers up front near the dash for efficiency?

Condencer removes heat from freon after its compressed. Its the evaporator that cools and the evaporator is inside the hvac unit under the dash.
Some condencers mounted up front, others mounted next to radiator.

Or.....my condensor fans are on the rear passenger side of the coach. Radiator on the driver side.

Does not matter where the condencer is located. As long as its clean and has good airflow when compressor running.
