Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
Sounds like your evaporator is icing up. When the air is flowing over the evaporator it cools and dehumidifies the air. That water from the air will freeze over the evaporator and turn it into an Ice block. There could be many reasons this is happening. First check your air filter, crucial that it gets changed every 2 to 4 months, if its dirty then change it. Other reasons are that the condenser and or evaporator are dirty, could be low on refrigerant. Since you say the airflow is good at the beginning of the cycle then I'd rule out the fan having a problem.
So check your filter first but I highly recommend calling a pro to check the refrigerant level.

David,you pretty much answered your own question when you said it sounds like ice cubes crackling.That\'s exactly what it is.Fire it up,good air flow for 30 minutes.No AC,shut it down.Well,an hour is plenty long enough for all that frozen water that soaks the dirt and scum thats caked up in the unit to thaw out and go out the drain.Then your air flow is back.DON"T turn it back on untill youve pulled the cover off and hosed the intire unit out with a garden hose with pressure.You\'ll se what I mean when you pull the cover off top.I\'m an RV man too Bro.Keep it clean,it\'ll keep her cool.After a thorough cleaning,leave it uncovered for the day.Let it dry completely.Check for dirt again in the condensor.Ya gotta do this every year before going on that excursion.Regards,Rigger.

Testimonial: "This unit is only 7 months old and the filter was cleaned 2weeks ago. I checked the filter and it was clean. But there is a tag that says" this freezer control sensor must be properly installed" this was hanging off a wire inside the ac unit. Model #57915-301"
