    unless I've missed it,
    you haven't mentioned the horsepower -
    there are some differences on "2006 four stroke" models
    between F2.5 and F250

    regardless, the thermostat does not need to open for water to exit the telltale

    but particularly on larger engines,
    it is normal for 'a few seconds' to elapse on startup
    before the telltale stream appears.

    as long as it 'eventually' shows up -
    I wouldn't worry

      Larger HP engines, especially, may not always pee on a hose (depends on flow/pressure/hose size/hose length) - and you didn't mention if this was in the water or on a hose. It can definitely take a little time - sometimes even 30 seconds or so - for it to start peeing.

      How long did you run it "with no alarms" showing up?

      With everything else being good, if you still don't get it peeing, it could be as simple as a clogged pee hole.
