Remove the sensor from the evaporator and let it hang loose. Does the vent temps go lower? It is very possible the sensor is bad. Was the compressor new ?

Added info: I realize getting to the sensor may be a bear. Try this first. Run a wire from the compressor clutch connection to the inside of the cab. Connect a meter or small lamp to lead and ground. If the light stays on, it is probably not the sensor. You may not have a refrigeration issue but a control issue.

As the day goes on the vent temp warms to 55-60 and it doesn't keep the cab cool...

This sounds like really bizarre behaviour for a bad evaporator temperature probe.
