I crawled under mine - the hose you refer to IS the condensate drain. check to make sure your compressor is not staying engaged - its the lowest pulley on the drivers side of the engine. It is engaged when the center is spinning with the outer belt track. ANYTIME that compressor is spinning it will make condensate. If its staying engaged even with the system off you have a trip to the dealer to consider! It should engage when either AC is selected (with fan on) or DEFROST is selected (with or without fan on).

The Jeep wave - it means nothing. Now I look for the RearView wave. Anyone can cause a guy to readjust his rear view at night. But in the daytime when you roll up behind someone and they adjust their mirror to frame your Jeep straighter - THAT'S a compliment!
