Oohh that smell..Melting plastic?

Remember that song? Well we have a new smell now that wakes us out of sleep and keeps us from returning! Original AC on 1979 Argosy minuet 24 runs good and keeps trailer cool in intensely hot Texas summers. BUT, ocassionally will smell of burning? melting? plastic/ or maybe copper smell. The AC unit shifts 'gears' and we jump out of slumber (when it has happened most -3x so far) and turn it off to let it 'rest." It then does very well until it happens again. Anyone had a similar experience? we are not using it unless we are in the trailer or just outside and are wondering what the root issue could be. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
