That will tell you if the unit is properly charged. This test is valid for both R22 and R410a.
I doubt you are low on charge. These units only hold a pound or so, so any type of leak is going to blow the entire charge and then there is no cooling.

I think your time would be better spent inspecting and taping the plenum where is goes into the ceiling vents(if it is a ducted unit) and around the ceiling registers. RV AC ducting is by nature installed very sloppily and you may be dumping cold air into the ceiling area where it is going to do you no good.
Thanks Bob, I figured you would chime in.
