A/C Problems Again ????

First trip out with new, and repaired A/C unit in our 2015 Grey Wolf. Original proplem fixed ( unit was freezing up ) First 2 days everything great, unit cooled just fine, kept the unit 74 Deg., with temp.in the high 80"s, unit cycled on and off and a nice steady drip of condensation from the rain gutter. Third day, sitting there , drinking a forbidden substance ( In Ga State Parks )noticed no condensate dripping, must be a lot less humidity today ???? went inside and temp was up to 80, Shiiii !!! thought it was fixed, but the unit was not running, as it did when it froze up in the past. Turned the unit off for about ten minites, back on, unit started up and did fine, ran great for the next day +, went out for a while, came back, and same thing, turned it off, waited, back on , and the unit did fine for the next day +, and continued till did returned home.

Any opinions before i drag it the 40 miles back to Camping World to try to find what seems to be in intermittent problem. Seems like it just does not come back on after cycling off.

make sure your fan setting is on high, low fans speeds contribute to the A/C freezing up

I don't think it's iceing, when it was doing that before , it was still running but not blowing cold air, in this case it's working fine untill it cycles off, then does not restart till i turn it off and back on again ( maybe 5 min. ), then runs great again ??????

Some AC's will ice up below 74-76 degrees...

not sure why. bad circulation, dirty filter, poor design?

We had this very thing happen to us on a trip in OR. camped in 90+ degree heat left the dog home and went for a day trip. Came back camper hotter than heck (dog was fine} and it was blowing but no cooling. Froze up! It was our own fault, I set the thermostat to run instead of auto and the unit just never shut off the whole time. After that the five years we had it never a problem, set to auto and around 72 degrees run all day and keep it just right.
When it's super hot it just couldn't run constantly with no shut down time. Just a thought....

So it cools fine until it cycles off and then doesn't turn back on at all? If so it sounds like a thermostat/control board issue.
