Once again I would be remiss if I didn't thank everyone that responded. I went out to the lake on Friday and looked over the unit. The fins were clean but I noticed there were 2 filters being used at the same time. One looked like an ordinary A/C filter, the other was a much finer piece of material that looks a lot like a large scrubber used to clean pots and pans. I removed this one and just used the other filter.
I checked the sight glass in the raw water strainer that feeds water to the A/C unit. It looked clean and water appeared to be flowing. Just to be sure, I shut everything down and opened up the strainer. It did have some debris in there so I cleaned it out and put it all together and fired up the A/C.
It worked like a champ! I am thinking reduced airflow caused by the extra filter and reduced water flow caused by the debris contributed to the freezing of the unit.
Thanks everyone for your input.
