Holiday Rambler A/C

A/c runs great for 20 minutes. Then stops producing cold air, although the fan is still running. 20 minutes latter it will work fine again for another 20 minutes, on and on. Changed the compressor, high and low lines, a couple of shorted wires and a relay. What could be the problem?

I assume you are asking about your dash a/c because you say you changed the compressor. If you didn't replace the accumulator and pull a good vacuum before recharging the system, it then might be trash or more likely moisture in the system.
Moisture will freeze in the metering device after a short time, causing enough restriction to trip the low pressure switch. After a while the moisture will thaw and the pressure will rise allowing the LP switch to close and start the compressor again. Normal humidity in the air is enough moisture to cause this.
