I noticed my 07 classic bodystyle is producing a large volume of water running off the condenser after operating the heater or A/C. Continues dripping several hours after operation leaving large puddle of water under the truck. Heater and A/C seem to perfrom just fine, is this normal? Never had a vehicle produce this kind of water volume before.

the condenser by the radiator or are you talking about the accumulator on the firewall?

Appears to be the accumulator on the firewall based on where I see the water coming from. Assumed it was a condenser, my bad..

Pretty sure its normal. You're cooling a pretty big cabin that has a lot of glass are to let sunlight in. Mine makes a lot of water in the summer as well.

It means its working. Actually it's called an evaporator core. What AC does is remove moisture/humidity along with heat from air.

The unit is working as normal.

High humidity areas will flow more water from the evaporator. Areas that have a dry climate-- not so much.

When you operate the defrosters, that also operated the AC, so you will see more water from that. That cycle helps keep the windows clear in cool weather.
