Low Beam comes on late

I just bought a 1995 F250 7.3 and when i goto drive it after it sits a while my low beams will not come on. Then when i start driving they will come on and stay on. Then if i shut it off , go inside and do somethin for like 10 mins come back out and start the truck they work. but if i let the truck sit for a hour or so the lights come on late. The highbeams will work only in flash to pass mode until the low beam comes on. Could it be the wiring ? the headlight switch or something? i just got it yesterday and havent had time to look at it yet.
