Default gargling noise after a long drive with my AC on

i have a gargling noise when i shut the truck off after a long drive with my AC on. my temp gauge doesnt go above normal either. Do i just have to change my radiator fluid?

Mine does that even with the defrosters, once it turns off, you can hear a quick gurgle but nothing is affected by it

A/C compressor shuts off . . .
Pressure equalizes throughout system . . .
Gas to liquid and drains/collects . . .
Makes noise that you describe . . .

I think . . .

Or is it just the condensed water working its way out the drain?

In any case, seems to be "normal" . . .

I think . . .
