gotta give it time to get going. remember all the pipes are HOT from sitting and the cold air will pick up that heat. also the coil under the dash is HOT and it takes time to cool that also. NO ac will come on blowing instant cold air. they all take a bit to get rolling.

I figured that just seems 10 mins or say it a bit long. Oh well, would the orfice tube needing cleaning have anything to do with this issue?

you don't clean it, you replace it, if it was stopped up you would have major issues, so Id say your good, you can always check your pressures to be sure everything is good.

Just FYI, when your using "max cool" it circulates the air in the cab. So when you get in your truck after it's been sitting in the sun and it's 110-120 deg inside and the outside air is only 90 deg it works better to first pull the air from the outside using the regular A/C setting and then turn it to "max cool". Or you can do what I do and roll the windows down for the first few minutes
