Wet carpets, again. But not what you might think
To my surprise and high frustration, I discovered the passenger side carpet was thoroughly soaked. Further, I found damp carpet in the second row. Back in the winter water froze in the sunroof drain passenger side blocking it and spilling into the interior. Luckily I quickly became aware of the water then. No problem since until today.
After removing all the Weathertech rubber carpet covers and checking all carpets I learned that the underside of all the Weathertech pieces were heavily coated with "dew". The sunroof drains are clear, so is the A/C drain. This part of the South has had a good amount of rain and off and on cool nights. As best I can tell condensation has been the culprit.
There has been no need for A/C or heat in the car so no drying by those mechanisms. Now I'll have to keep an eye on the carpets until it turns much warmer and the solar gain or A/C can keep the interior dry.
Have any other Weathertech users experienced anything like this?
