    Ok so I have a new 2012 DCSB. When it rains in the morning on my drive to work and I park my truck all day there's condensation inside the truck in the afternoon after work. Mostly on the windshield and the drivers side window.

    I live in hawaii so the temps always warm.

    Is there possibly a leak somewhere around the windshield or something?

    What you guys think?

    Better tires Hurcules Terra Track, trimmed front mud flaps, (access limited tonneau-took off) softopper, ats running boards, Piaa fogs, window vents, Wireless thermometer, extra bed rings, valley hitch
    I try and leave my window open a crack. Also, before arriving at destination turn off ac and make sure is is not on recirculate.

    Both help keep truck aired out and avoid condensation.

    Do you have the AC on in the rainy mornings, or are you running with the windows down? If you have the AC on and you're getting condensation inside the truck I would think something is wrong, dealer time... If you are running with the windows down, then rolled up after you arrive, might just be trapping the moisture inside.

    Recirc on or off? I have seen condensation get pushed onto my windshield after startup on a humid day if the recirc is on on startup, but that's pretty rare, for me anyway.

    Try turning recirc off a few minutes before you stop and see if that helps.
