    I keep a thermometer in my vent at all times. Maybe you should get one to see what temp it's blowing. I dont know what the ideal temp is supposed to be, but mine blows at about 40-50 degress F once it runs for a while and Im moving down the road.

    Does the ac compressor cycle on and off a lot? If so, that's a sign you are low on freon.
