if your getting water from the supply vents you are likely not moving enough air. is there a chance you are blocking the return air or supply air from free movement? The reason moisture is created there is because your discharge air temp is lower than the dew point for your conditioned space. If the humidity is extremely high and the room is extremely warm this can also cause this to happen.
