Default wierd little leak

alright...this is kinda wierd. i got home today and came back outside like 15 minutes later to find a leak from under the truck. its coming from the area where the two pipes come into the bottom of the radiator on the passenger side. i checked all the fluids and theyre all full, and i did have my AC on but i had turned it off about 5 minutes ago. anyone have an idea of what it could be?

so today...checked all the fluid and everything is full...nothing has leaked anything but the leak is persistent. it seems to only lose fluid when i park somewhere. could it be me shifting it into park that is causing this?

Wipe the area off real clean and see if thats were it's leaking. If so as previously stated check all hoses and fittings ,clamps etc.Hope this helps.

It may only leak while driving (under pressure) and only shows when you stop where it has a chance to drip instead of being blown back along the undercarriage.
