Large puddle of coolant underneath truck

The last 2 mornings i have had 2 large puddles of coolant underneath my truck, and i mean large. I cant tell where its coming from but only seems to happen when it sits over night, never seems to leak during the day.. The overnight temperatures have been around 35 to 40 degrees. Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this big coolant leak. My wifes car broke down last week so this is our only mode of transportation so if anyone has any ideas, please let me know. If i was to take a guess, it looks like its coming from somewhere on the drivers side area but not 100 % positive.....

Egr cooler hose, located on the right side in the engine valley. Should be either an orange hose, or an updated blue hose.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Unfortunately had to Sell my ......2004 KR CC SWB FX4 - Edge insight cts, blue spring upgrade, updated HFCM drain plug, XDP coolant filter, CAT EC-1 rated coolant, Custom Diesel EGR delete, CAT delete, Rotella T6

Southend you were right, thank you for the adice on where to look. I took the truck to a diesel mechanic and he also noticed the hose. We also ran a pressure test on the degas bottle and other things and found out i need head gaskets. I figured something was up with all the coolant i was losing, even after changing the cap two times. He gave me a price to bullet proof the engine, with parts and labor he said 3000.00 dollars. I didnt get a list of everything he would do to it, but said it would fix every know issue these motors have. He works for the local ford dealership here so i feel comfortable with him doing it. Im glad i went there, but didnt need this news to start my weekend off.... LOL
