My carrier air conditioning unit does not cool below 72 degrees. I was continually running to the point the outside unit connection to the house was frosted. I turned the unit off and let sit for a few hours. Turned it back on and the Thermostat seems to be working; however the unit can not cool the house below 72 when it had in the past. Am I looking at a leak or re-charge???

I have a 2011 Wildwood travel trailer. I tried to use the air conditioner for the first time this weekend. When I turned the themostat to cool and 65 degrees the air unit "clicked" one time but the unit did not start. I tried various settings but nothing. When I turned the thermostat off the unit clicked one time again. This is a brand new trailer and the first time I tried the air. Any thoughts?
