The air flow on ours is almost impossible to detect without putting your hand right up to one of the ceiling vents. Changing the fan speed from low to high to automatic makes no audible or air flow difference.
This a/c is definitely not capable of cooling the motorhome in temperatures beyond the mid 70's.
Our authorized Newmar dealer says it is working as expected.
BTW, we've had two other motorhomes with single a/c units and both were very effective in keeping the unit cool, even in high (80's and 90's) temperatures.
The only thing I might suggest is that the A/C unit was installed incorrectly. We had a '97 MA that we took to the factory to have the A/C unit replaced (this coach was 34' and also only had one air.). The unit was getting some age on it and we didn't want to have a failure in the middle of summer. Well, the new unit didn't cool nearly as well as the 12 year old unit we had replaced, took it back to the factory and they said it was operating "normally". It too felt like it had really reduced air flow. Long story short, after sweating one particularly hot weekend, we took it to our local RV servicer. After some trouble shooting, they figured out that the unit had been set over the ductwork in the roof with about 90% blockage. The tech retrofitted the opening to match--after that the unit cooled like a charm. You may have a similar situation.
