AC Smell on startup - like a moldy sock

Anyone having issues with their AC smelling on start up for just a few minutes? Mine smells aweful for a few minutes and then goes away. Any ideas how to remedy this?

About 1 minute before you shut the truck off, turn off the AC and just let the fan run. You are getting condensation in the vent piping from running the AC. If you run the vent fan for a minute before shutting down, it will help to dry the piping before you shut it off.
