The other morning i plugged my truck in and when i went to start it i noticed coolant on the ground, didnt think much of it bc it wasnt that much. This morning i had only plugged it in for like and hour and a half (withc wasnt long enough i know) but a much bigger puddle of coolant was on the ground. Now what the heck would cause that only when its plugged in, when its running its fine. just wanna know if thats happened to anyone before, cheacking hoses and clamps now. DAM USED DODGES

That's odd it's only when it's plugged in. What about after you shut it off after the engine is hot? What area of the engine does it look like it's coming from?

nope, once its hot and plug it in its fine. i think i fingered it out lol. there must b some seal where the wire goes into the block and it must be leaking there.

Hmm, hit it with some RTV and see if that stops it

Clean it up first with some ether and a rag before you hit it with RTV, and make sure it's the high-temp stuff.

Should be fine after that.
