Default Wife complains about feet getting cold

My wife is always complaining about her feet getting cold on the passenger side. Has anyone else had this problem? Also she thinks the seals are bad on the doors since there is frost inside. I told her it is just because the floor mats are wet.

Thanks

i have noticed the truck takes longer to warm up than the chevy's I am used to .

make sure you put the controls on the lower vents or upper and lower and push in the fan control that turns on the recycle interior air light . so then you arent trying to warm freezing cold air , you will be warming only the air inside the truck.

my truck can sit for 5 minutes running and doesnt blow warm air until about 10 minutes into the drive when the needle moves off the cold peg .

this is my first dodge and hemi so i just figure that this is the way they are .

only other suggestion would be to buy her some wool socks .

Moving from a 99 Dakota to my 11 Ram the heat output was remarkable....HOWEVER now that I'm in a 13 Ram I have to say that the 11 was really lacking. I don't know what they changed but the 13 heats quicker and stays warmer longer than the 11 did? I also noticed the 11 didn't get as warm when it's -20C out, this 13 will cook you out of the truck! So now that I don't have the issue...I have to say the heat is lacking in the 11's anyway.

Duct tape...and not for the truck's leaks ! J/K
Seriously, you could be a gentleman and close your vent(s) to increase air velocity on her side.
Where's the frost at?

Dwanton, i do that but it still doesn't help that much.

Stump, does this mean I should trade mine in and get a 2013?

Ram em, I think the duct tape will get me punched.... frost is on the windshield.

I'm In the same boat as Stump3r. My 2012 will cook you out of the truck, head to toe. But I do have a regular cab, so I'm not sure if that is why it gets so hot very quickly. Don't show this to your wife, or she may make you "down-grade" to a reg. cab! LOL.

Hell yes get a 13 I'm amazed at the difference from an 11 to the 13. I still think this is what the 4th Gen Rams should have been like back in 09 when they introduced them!

Don't know if I will do it because I will be going to Turkey for 2 years in July. Might wait until I get back to the states. Next truck will be a Longhorn Laramie. I love the seats.

my 08 is like a wooden stove fire the moment the dial starts moving.. the frost on the windsheild is strange. Maybe check all of your seals.
