Hi my name is Robert...

From my experince if the AC compressor will not shut down you have a failed relay on the board for the AC unit and the board would need to be replaced. I might find a RV shop with a test board to confirm..... Robert

Good morning. The jury is still out on a solution. My rv centre was not sure about my problem. I have ordered a new control box for my air conditioner. It is suppose to be here Monday. If you like I can keep you in the loop as to outcome.
