Default Water leaking????

Hi gang, noticed the last few days I have had water leaking from my truck. Now all my fluids are fine and I have had condensation on the truck in the mornings. After a 17 min ride to work and 1 hour sitting I keep getting this big puddle under the truck. Is this a common thing or do I possibly have something wrong? It's alway in the same spot.
And like I said dew on the truck in the mornings and in the 50's so it's not air conditioning runoff

Looks to me like the condensation from the air conditioner. Try driving without the AC on and see if it still happens.

Airs not on , but the heater is on full most of the ride. 6 other cars in the parking lot including a 04 ram and mines the only one that does this. I find it hard to believe that that much dew water could build up and drain from the same spot. If so then that really scares me as far as what the backside of my sheet metal looks...

What about defrost? If defrost is on then the AC compressor is on.

Otherwise I'm not really sure... If the heater is on then it's cold out...right? Do you possibly have ice forming in the cowl and then the heat is melting it?
