A/C Condensation and Leaking

Hey guys, my A/C lines are covered in condensation when my A/C is being used or the heat is on. Also, when I park, there is a lot of water leaking from I assume the drain? I read another thread that said I could squeeze the drain line to empty it. Is the truck supposed to be running to do this, I played around with the line and nothing happened. I just want to make sure nothing is wrong with my system, thanks!

Make sure the condensate drain is clear and not blocked with leaves, easiest to check from under the truck looking up at the blower motor.

Condensation varies with the humidity and is a byproduct of the refergeration cycle.

Just make sure it can drain freely or it can flood your floorboards.

Thanks Jim, no leaking inside, drain seems to be working fine, just a lot of water but I guess that is normal!
