A/C doesn't seem very cold

Hi gang. I'm less than 1 week into the ownership of my first F250. I moved up from an 2002 F150 where the AC was so cold it would drive you crazy. With my new truck, it just doesn't seem very cold. The air isn't warm by any stretch, but it isn't freezing me out either. When I was driving it home, I had the temp set to 70, and the fan blew on high almost the entire trip home (300 miles of interstate). Do the A/Cs in these diesels just not work as well as the gassers, or could I have a low freon issue (or possibly worse). I'm taking her to the dealer tomorrow for a 60k service, so I'm planning on having them check it out, but just wanted to get some opinions before I showed up there.

scuffy, If we put a Temp gauge in the air vents, what temp is "good"? at what temp do we take it in?

I'm hoping it is the freon. The TSB about the debris sounds like the compressor and dryer have to be replaced....that doesn't sound in the same zip code as cheap. She goes in tomorrow AM for the service, I'll let you know the outcome.

No they wont. A tsb is a technical service bullitin. It explains common problems and solutions for vehicles. They have nothing to do with warranty unless theres a campaign or something.
