'99 Dodge pu question

I have breakfast with an older retired guy each morning. We were talking about our trucks yesterday and he said that his '99 Dodge 3/4 ton V10 is very slow going into reverse after sitting for a week or two. He's in rehab for knee surgery and doesn't drive the truck right now. He says that when he starts it and puts it in reverse, he has to rev it a few times before it will go into gear. I don't know the exact tranny model or milage, but its not driven alot.
He called the dealer and told them what was going on because its still under warrantee and they said its normal for that to happen as the fluid drains out of the converter over the week or 2 of sitting. Is this true? If not, what are the suggestions for correcting the slow engagement into reverse?

Thanks.
Mark

V10 info

The transmission in that vehicle is a 47RE. I am assuming that it has a trans oil cooler.
In this case it can be oil drain back. If there are no other symptoms that this is a good possibility.

It is a common problem with mopar products for decades.

Tell him to let the truck idle in neutral ( brakes applied) while the truck warms up a bit. the tranny will fill the converter faster in neutral. See if that helps reverse apply faster
