Sounds like spraying

Ok so I live in Southern Louisiana and the average temperature is a brisk 95+ degrees..

So I noticed after using my A/C that when I shut of my engine the A/C drips from under my Jeep and it sounds like it trying to spray out but I think it's dripping onto the hot frame which sounds like spraying... I'm sure it's normal I just haven't heard this before?

Its the condensation from the a/c dripping on the exhaust. Nothing to worry about

I'm from Nebrasak where we have high humidity - probably not as bad as Louisiana. It is highly recomended here that when you run your AC you should turn it off your last mile of your trip and run your fan at high (AC off) this does two things, help with the condensation dropping off while moving and the most important - prevents mold from building up on the interior of the vent piping and in any heppa filter in the vehicle. Anybody get into a car that is three years old and it smells like mold - this tip prevents that.
