What RV do you have? A photo of the A/C would be helpful too.

The compressor will kick out when the thermostat reaches the set point that has been set.

If the compressor cycles constantly you might try to move the thermocouple further away from the air flow so it activates the set point at a lower temperature. Or, the unit may be low on refrigerant or the filter is dirty. It's hard to pin point without a little more information.

The A/C may just be working properly for the size of room it's trying to cool.

Filter clean. The thing is that compressor runs like 10 seconds and kicks out and will kick back in just short time again.

That's indicative of a unit low on refrigerant. The compressor will pump it through the circuit and then the low refrigerant sensor kicks in and the compressor cycles out until the refrigerant drops to the compressor to be pumped up again.
That's the simple explanation without going through the gas/liquid scenario.

Neither of my units have a low pressure switch. I would check the thermocouple/thermostat assy and also check the airflow divider that seperates the supply air from the return. Several of us have had it to fall down and it lets the supply and return air mix which would make your thermocouple/thermostat satisfy prematurely.
