Good morning gents.

I recently (last few weeks) noticed in the mornings as soon as I turn on my HVAC I am hearing water sloshing back and fourth somewhere from the center of the dash. I haven't used my A/C in months since its winter, heater only. Have not seen any water inside the cab or anything to indicate a leak, but I can loudly hear the water sloshing.

Anyone else notice this? Normal?

You need to check the a/c condensate drain.

Know where it's located? Easy to get to? I find it weird I recently started having this issue even though I haven't turned on the A/C in at least 2 months.

I’m sure somebody here knows where. Probably in the tunnel under the dash area or near there.

Just found this: The drain is against the firewall just left of center just above the transmission

Whether you are cooling the truck or heating the truck, the AC compressor runs to remove moisture from the air, else you would be driving around with fogging windows. You can turn the AC of by hitting the AC button, if it's lit the AC is on.
Here is a link that may help.
