Dometic AC Woes!

Greetings everyone! My first post here. I have a 2012 forest river work and play toy hauler WPT275VLSBS, which is having some air conditioning problems. A Dometic 13.5, 459516.711CO serial # 2272024.
At first it was displaying E5 error ( freeze sensor and communications problem?) And the compressor would come on for 30 seconds then shut off with only fan blowing for 3 mins. The compressor back on for 30 seconds…over and over again. Now the ac compressor trys to engage for 1 sec then clicks off.
We replaced the 3 wire digital thermostat and did reboot, inspected freeze sensor, shut all power off( 12 volt and 110 ) and turned back on.. No difference. A RV mechanic said sounds like compressor? Where would I find correct replacement? Thank you for any help!
