Rooftop AC Issues

Finally have all the bugs worked out of my rv motor and drivetrain wise. We r ready to use it this weekend. the roof top ac unit isn't blowing real cold air. It feels cool and ok but it does noting for the rv. This is a 1992 bounder rv
The ac unit has just your fan speeds and your ac speeds to choose from. Then on the other side u have another knob for I guess air temp. I'm guessing the unit was made to run all the time since there is not thermostat for it????
it just doesn't blow very cold air and makes a lot of water on the roof that runs down the sides. All I hear is a blower running and don't really hear a compressor or anything. The fridge is the other issue but that's a whole new thread. lol
Any advise, it was 80 out side and 80 in the rv with ac running for hrs.

First thing to do is clean the unit. You would be surprised how much difference it will make. You have to climb onto the roof to do the job, and there are multiple videos on You Tube showing how it is done. It is a "canned" unit, which is designed to be replaced when any pressure containing bit fails. Unless you have a friend in the AC business, pray the cleaning works.

As the unit is producing water, I would guess it is working to some extent. I would bet taking the cover off and cleaning the condenser coils and fins would work wonders. One of the knobs should be a thermostat or at least a variation of temp control.
