A/C seats, not that cool

So now that its warm I am finially starting to use my A/C seats in my truck. They do not hardly cool at all, especially compared to my grandpa's 11' F-150's cooled seats. I took it to the dealer and they said the airflow was there??? I can hardly tell the things are on, especially on my back. I looked under the seats and the fan is working I can't hardly feel any air on the seat backs(a little on the butt part of my seat) with my hand, while on my grandpa's 11' the seats will about freeze you out of the truck.

Any Ideas. I only have 1000 miles left on my bumper to bumper warranty so i need to get some ideas ASAP

You know now that you mention it mine are not all that cold. There are 3 settings I've never seen a need to take it off the maximum setting.

I was wearing Jeans instead of dress pants yesterday and didn't even know they were on.

Mine seem to do fairly well. Been 95-98 degrees outside the past few days and had no problem with cooling. Mine is KR and I know the thicker leather makes the seats warm up very slow when the heater is on. What trim do you have?

Does the seat back and bottom cool off equally? On mine the back gets much colder.

mine is an early 2011, heat only with no cooling. I don't feel too bad now for not having it as an option if they sound like they don't work too well. lol

Mine work great on my lariat. I can't feel any air comin through them but they get plenty cold enough to cool things off.

Dead opposite bottom is cool back is warm. I wonder if it is just something like the holes in the foam not lined up right, or something simple
