Sounds normal to me, cooler the better IMO.

If its cooling off to much turn it on recerulate and it will start warming the cab up and motor. you will have to crack a window to stop fogging up

When this happened did the heat cool down or did it still stay warm? Assuming you had the heater going of course...

the air coming out of the vents does cool down noticably.

Lets just say not quite stock.

Even with the cold front cover on? So does it blow cool air or just "cooler" air as in, warm air just not hot air?:

And does that happen with the supp. heater? What exactly does the suppl. heater do?

Ive got the supp heater. It just aid with warming up the cab on a cold morning. Haveing the winter front on doesnt seem to make that much of a difference. But the air is just cooler. Not like having the window open. Just not as hot as when driving.
