Resolved Question:

my 2004 gmc sierra airconditioning blows hot air after it has been running- pulling a load for a short period of time - is there an air conditioning relay switch or something wrong with it.

Reply to Brandon's Post: That isn't it - we unhooked the present pressure switch and hooked it back up and the ac works fine...the hot air comes out after we have been pulling a load(stock trailer) and only on the drivers side. usually the passenger side continues to blow cold air.

It sounds like it is a temp mode actuator losing it's memory, so it goes to default. You will probably need to replace that actuator.
