Mach 3 stopped cooling

I'm a real newbie when it comes to the AC, but I'm pretty handy with most stuff--so I'm hoping I can fix this myself.

A few days ago, in 90+ weather, the AC just stopped cooling. Still blows air, just not cold. Any thoughts?

You need 30 amp to run A/C. Any possibility you're on a 20 amp service?
  1. Reset all of your circuit breakers, can't hurt. On newer Airstreams you have to turn them OFF, then ON to reset.
  2. Turn off the A/C, then pull the filters off and clean them (a quick vacuum will help if they're impacted). Turn back on and try again.
  3. Turn off the A/C, pull the cover and look for loose or burned wires. Repair if found.
  4. Curse, call a pro. You've probably lost all of your coolant or blown the compressor.
How old is the A/C and is it still under warranty? I figure you get 10 years of steady use and you're on borrowed time.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.
