Question A/C drain tube

Can anybody tell me where to locate the A/C drain tube for my 2000? My a/c smells like hell (mildew).. I think water is trapped in the system and can't get out... I remember seeing lots of water draining 2 weeks ago, but now I haven't noticed any water dripping lately.
Thanks in advanced.

Nobody knows where the drain tube is???? I could find my if it was actually drainning water, but it's not... I would rather fix the problem rather than cover it up with air-fresheners.

From the inside, I think that you can remove the glove box, and remove the heater core cover with several screws. The drain should be in the bottom of the heater core cover.

I will see if I remember to crawl under the truck in the AM to see where it is located
from he outside... Would be easier to try to blow out the hose from
the outside.

Thanks guys let me know what you all find.. I took the glove box off, and the cover to something that looks like a mini radiator. I stop there cause I ran out of day light.. but still couldn't find the mysterious drain tube.

Once you get it cleared out start running it on Normal as opposed to Max. When on Max it re circulates the cabin air and contributes to mold buildup.

I took mine to a shop and they pumped the evap housing full of foam that cleans and deodorizes the evap. They pump it in thru the drain tube then it slowly dissolves while cleaning the evap. I was skeptical at first but it really did work. It was $75.00.

It drips onto the leafspring. Sorry, I know that doesn't help much but I verified mine was working by finding the puddle.

Once you verify that it is clear I would do the ol' aerosol lysol through the intake trick to kill the bugs that are making the funk in the system.
