Sorry if this has already been posted somewhere. I searched. A lot. To no avail. And I’m simply curious if others have had stains like we have had on our garage floor. To be honest, we love this van and have zero complaints so far but this one leaves us puzzled. Especially being that our high mileage town and country and my high end luxury car cause neither problem in our garage. Anyway, is this normal for the evap condensate?

Been using the AC in the van before you park it?

I've noticed water stains at the front of the vehicle and always attributed it to the undercarriage panels that retain moisture and then drip dry onto the floor.

I believe Chrysler tints the water from your AC unit so that you know the drain tube is not obstructed and is draining properly....

You may want to sweep your floor so that the evaporated water doesn't make mud.

Looks like cheap Irish whiskey to me!

Seriously, as long as the A/C is working, and water drips out, you're good to go. It's probably some residual manufacturing coating that was put on something the water passes over before it lands on your garage floor.

Guess I’ll just keep an eye on it. It’s been insanely hot and humid in central Florida lately so the AC is certainly getting heavy use. Just never had a vehicle drip orange water before and figured I’d see if it was just me. Which I guess it is lol AC worked great though!
