I don't really see how it could be related, as the condenser fan is electrical, and your coolant fan is clutch driven. Perhaps your fan clutch is bad and not spinning you radiator fan properly so that your truck coolant heats up at idle?

Oh and to the OP, I had the identical problem a few years ago. It was definitely the condenser fan. It wasn't all that hard to replace as I recall.
