Mysterious wet floor board (passenger side)

Now I know this has been discussed previously but I hadn't found a discussion similar to what I have been going through. I have an 08 Jeep Commander 3.7 liter. The floorboard on the passenger side has been getting very wet but I can't seem to locate the source. The vehicle does not have a sunroof. It does not have any leaks through the windshield nor passenger door seal. I pulled the carpet back so I could let it dry and while so, ran the jeep through a car wash twice, but nothing. The ac has been running constantly and there are no drips whatsoever. It's not until I pulled the carpet back down after testing to find out it was moist again. One thing I noticed is when the carpet is pulled back, the metal floor board feels hot. I'm not sure what is going on. Maybe some of you can chime in and let me know what you may think. Thank you in advance

I second the heater core, but usually you can smell anti-freeze inside the jeep.

your drain tube is blocked. look online and you should find a cure. in the summer when air is on it creates a lot of water from the warm, moist air going over the cold tubes and it has to go somewhere. something got in there and blocked it up. take some air and blow through the tube and that may fix it.

If this was so, wouldn't I be able to see the actual leak happening?

This wouldn't be the case being that I just pooped 30 minutes ago and I can assure you, the ability to smell isn't lost.

There is no antifreeze smell inside nor sights of dripping anywhere. The carpet is still pulled back and I ran the ac for the last hour as I ran my errands. Condensate is leaking normally onto the cat where I hear hissing.

Where exactly is the tube from underneath? Any pictures of it being that I was never able to locate that tube.

Pretty sure the "drain tube" he is referring to would be the train tubes from your non-existent moon roof. My guess is they didn't read your whole post. But...I could be wrong.

the a/c drain tube on my 07 is right above the second cat. really hard to find. I had to start the car, turn on the a/c and look for drips under the car. be careful not to burn your hands. If there is nothing there check you tube. I remember a vid about cutting into the sound deadener under the right side of the dash to locate the drain tube and un plugging it. good luck.
