AC Condensation Drain

I just picked up my 19 Adventure.

Does anyone know where the AC condensation drains out the water? I hadn't noticed until I left the dealership but it seems something puddles right behind the front passenger wheel near the passenger door. It just looks like water or condensation to me but kind of wanted reassurance from others that they get the same puddles.

Since the engine is different it's apples and oranges but that's really close to where it is in my 4.3. It's also close to the water pump, which is why I had a similar scare with the old RAV. If you can see where it's dripping from, try to catch some in a glass or cup. If you don't see any pink tint to the collected drippings, you're good to go.

Pro tip: red Solo cups work really well for this - and for parties, of course - because of their white interior. Good luck!

Current: 2010 RAV4 base trim, 2.5L 4-cyl, AWD, Black exterior, Beige interior, Third Row, Roof Rack, and not much else. 125,000 miles, not one day off the road for mechanical stuff. New pads/rotors x2, new tires x3

Awaiting delivery: 2019 HV XSE, Blueprint, pano, weather, tech, JBL

I think you're right. Noticed a puddle under mine in the same spot yesterday.

Thanks. Makes me feel a little better knowing others have the same puddle.

I'm not used to the condensation draining so close to the edge of the car.
