    It's been very dry over the past few days, but after returning from a camping trip and going to shake sand out of the front mats I noticed the floor boards were wet on the drivers and passengers sides. AC was on most of the ride home and I'm wondering if that could be related since there was no rain.

    Anyone run into this and have a solution?

    A/C takes the moisture out of the air when in operation. Look underneath the dash for any signs of leaking. Check and remove any rust from that condensation.

    The condensate tube could be clogged with debris blocking the drainage of water during a/c usage. Carpets should be removed to dry and prevent mold or mildew.

    An update on the situation here... my mechanic used his air compressor to blow out the a/c drain line and said that did release a good amount of water. However, the mats still had condensation under them when I ran the a/c. He did it again, but still have wetness under the mats with a/c. Wetness is still only an issue on days I use the a/c, leaks from rain dont seem to be an issue. Anyone have an idea for the next thing to try?

    Leave the carpets out for now and crack open a drain hole. When the drips start zero in on the source under the dash. Keep us updated

    Yep what aggrex said sounds like could be a cracked drain pan or something fell down in it and blowing it out just pushed it out of the way temporarily.

    Removed driver seat carpets, ran a/c a solid 15 minutes, no drips in the cabin but no draining under the chassis either. Turned out the carpets were actually dripping wet underneath. I'm planning to leave them out to dry until it rains this Tuesday so I can try to find water coming in then.
