Not true, it has to be dripping somewhere. Now it may be dripping on something hot and burning off, or could be dripping somewhere and pooling.

I'm thinking i've read on here the ac is designed to drip on the exhaust, so you won't see a puddle. You could certainly peek under the truck on a hot day with it running to check it.

My 2017 drips lake in humid weather.

You would not want to drip water intentionally on a spot on the exhaust be it stainless or not.

Rain splash is fine but concentrated drips is not good.

AC water dripping on exhaust and sizzling

Apparently GM disagrees with you.

Please Link where they say they do this and why they would.

Mine must be defective as it does not hit the exhaust. Lol!

Engineered to do that? That is just plain silly. I SERIOUSLY doubt any car designer gives a ratt's ass where the condensate drips. My guess is it just happened that way. Period. You guys give engineers way to much credit. Don't you pay attention to all the "engineered" crap that breaks all the time? Sheeesh.....

Actually they do worry where it goes as long as it is out of the car. And they would do there best to avoid the exhaust as dripping water constantly on a hot pipe like this would not be good for the pipe and would make the car steam or hiss.

of course out of the car, I just find it hilarious people saying they want it to hit the exhaust so it wont leave a puddle on the ground. Silly stuff man

Never under estimate the limits of man and his ability to rationalize.

I've been searching for mine tonight and finally found out where the hose is located.
On the drivers side in the interior if you lean down under the steering wheel back behind the console you will see a hose about 1/2" diameter exiting through the floor.
Down under the truck right above the front drive shaft is where the water exits. There is a silver heat shield or sound material with a hole where the water drips through.

8/14/2015 Ordered 2016 Canyon diesel CCSB, SLT, Copper/Red, black interior, Bose, spray in liner, transfer case shield, bars package and block heater.
Built 1/20/2016
Dealer received 2/3/2016
I received 2/5/2016

If it doesn't matter where it goes, pull that stick out of your ass and plug the drip line with it. How's that for engineering?

If a GM "Engineer/designer" intentionally "Engineered/designed" the A/C condensate drain to drip onto the hot exhaust anytime the A/C is running and there is any measurable humidity in the air...the idiot and whoever above him that approved his crap design should be fired...

The guy/gal would have a stellar career as a government employee...coming up with bad and poorly thought out ideas that others will have to pay the consequences for later on...
