    check the temperature gauge in the dash. when the truck is running and warmed up, where does the temperature gauge read? it should be at the 180 deg. point or slightly higher. if it's not the thermostat is opening too soon and the engine is not warming up as it is supposed to, a new thermostat should cure that. if it is reaching the proper temperature, the flap in the heater box that blends the warm and cold air could be broken/out of adjustment and it's not regulating the air mixture to your vents.

    Never really payed attention to the AC setup operation, but the condensor is in front of the radiator..if the fan is going, even at idle engine temp shouldn't affect the AC operation much.

    As to the heater, the higher the t-stat/engine temp, the hotter the air coming out will be.

    195* t-stat was stock, 195* is good.
