2000 4r100 odd shifting

I recently bought a 2000 F250 Lariat CCSRW powerstroke with 100k on it. It was damn near mint when I bought it. It had a 5th wheel in the bed and from my understanding it was owned by an older (60's +) gentlemen who used it to tow his 5th wheel camper back and forth from New Hampshire to Florida (1400 miles each way). Ive only put about 400 miles on the truck and am noticing it shifts odd. It doesn't seem to slip but it seems lazy shifting into the higher gears with a noticeable "slide" into gear. Almost as if you were riding the clutch into the next gear in a manual shift car. Also into overdrive this is very pronounced. I have spoken with a couple of ford techs at my dealership (i am a mechanic on Korean sh#tboxes and we also sell ford) and they suggested this was normal and to just install a programmer. The old man seemed pretty good about maintenance judging by the condition of the truck when he traded it in, but I am trying to figure out if I should be gearing up for a tranny pull and re-clutch or if these trannies seem to take their sweet *** time into gear when they are in the wrong mood...lol??
