2013 Seneca A/C Failure?

We are in our new(er) Seneca and are out west in Vegas where they are experiencing 110 deg. F days. We left our coach for the day only to come back with both A/C units blowing hot air, and the coach over 100 degrees inside. Flipping them off and then back on via the breakers did the trick, and they were both blowing cool air again.

Day 2 - we got smarter and set them back to 77 anad 80 instead of "full on" settings of 72 we had on day 1. We realized they probably can't keep up in this heat, so we thought the lessened load would allow for success. Returning at the end of day 2, they were blowing hot air and again the coach was over 100 degrees inside. Again, "rebooting" them did the trick and they were blowing cool air again.

During night both nights, they ran all night (cycled when needed).

Any ideas? Are they freezing up? Any way to keep them running? Am I dreaming in this climate with no shade?

Any help is appreciated.

Did you happen to have the fans on both units set to low or high? Sometimes setting them on low causes the condenser to ice up.
