Default AC Evaporator drain

So I've never really noticed this before, but I pulled into my garage this afternoon and noticed I was leaking fluid somewhere from the right side of the engine. Smelled it and it seems to be just water. Crawled under to find where it was coming from and it's on the passenger side on the engine side of the firewall. Small drain hose, so I figured it must be relatively normal if it's a drain. Turned the AC up to high speed and crawled back under and water kept dripping out pretty steadily, about a drop every second. How much is supposed to be dripping out of there?

yep its normal. the AC system on these rams is quite large and powerful. The larger the system, the more they condense. My truck is black (makes a difference) and here lately the outside temp has been in the mid 80's, she leaves a good sized water puddle wherever she goes LOL
