According to dealer "desiccant charge in system is saturated and excess moisture is freezing up upon continuous use" . Dealer replaced condenser and did not fill system completely, as instructed by the TSB. On the next long trip the A/C again did the same issue. Have called both GM and Dealer to find a fix
