It does not get cold the 12 volt DC side works as good as the 110 ac side there is 17.8 volts going to compressor condenser, I am not sure what the problem is

The next test is the Compressor Amp Draw

Which I got first reading of 1.68 which is in reason however it soon dropped to 1.28 then remained steady

For some reason when I left it alone to write this post it started getting cold I am going to get a thermometer to check temp with specs

Using a laser thermometer it held at 19 degrees

After letting it run for an hour I tested the volts and amps again I got 15.8 volts at the condenser and 1.64 amps
