Water leak

Seems like every time i get out of the truck i notice water dripping from the engine compartment right next to the passenger side wheel. Much like an auto after running the a/c on a hot day. Only this occurs on my truck in the winter and summer with either the heater or a/c running. My coolant is a little low but not enough to produce the amount of water that i have seen. the leak always stops a few minutes after the engine is shut down. Is this water leak a normal thing with the 6.0?

It will with A/C or the Defroster on. Since my heater seems to always be on defrost, I get the same.

the a/c system comes on in the all the defrost modes to help remove the condensation. all the a/c system does in vehicles is dehumidify the air, thats why you get the water outside.
