We have a 2004 Journey 32T with the 300HP Cummins and 6 speed Allison.
Have noticed a small fluid drip when we move the coach. It is a clear fluid and when digging around under the coach and found it appears to be originating from a breather hose. Not familiar with the set up of the engine/transmission, but would guess maybe it is the torque converter, between the transmission and the engine. Wondering if someone else may have experienced this and whether or not this warrants a trip to Freightliner.

I have a 02 horizon w/ a 330 cat. ITS normal to have a few drops of engine oil driping from the breather tube. This I got from talking to the cat and freightliner mechs. When pulling in for the day and ready to park, especially if I am on a concrete or black top pad, I put a small rag under the tube, where the oil drips to. I also lengthed the breather tube to drip lower, and to avoid the oil blowing on to my hitch while traveling. Hope this puts your mind adease. Now the oil just drips maybe 1 to 10 drops, anymore have it checked out, and make sure its coming from the breather hose.
