    So, it was kind of warm today. Got into the truck after work, 71 F, I decide to pop on the A/C in this bad boy for the ride home, it was kind of hot in the truck after all day in the sun. So work is like 1/4 mile off the interstate....I don't take note that the A/C isn't blowing cool air until after I get a good mile down the interstate. I check all settings, Max A/C set on temperature, A/C button ON, fan blower on High, recirculate ON. The air got cooler only when I turned the circulate OFF. But even then it wasn't cool, not like A/C should be. The air outside was actually cooler than the air it was blowing. This ordeal continues for some 24 miles until my exit. At that point, cursing and screaming at the truck, I slowed down while merging off the exit and onto the ramp. Low and behold, the A/C starts blowing air pretty cold. From that point on the A/C seemed to function properly, even at speeds close to the interstate speeds.

    Any ideas? This was not the first time the A/C has been turned ON. It's been used in the same setting before and seemed to function properly.

    just a couple comfort items.
    Could just be some oddball thing. My truck did the same thing once or twice for whatever reason when it was new,:notsure: but has been perfect for the last couple years.
