Hydraulic Hose Weeping

I just replaced a hose to my bedroom slide (04 36mds). I cleaned all leakage of fluid very good and pressurized the lines. Now I notice the larger line weeping as shown in picture. I am concerned another bad HWH hose but then I thought it could be saturation from the other leak. Aynone seen this before?

Looks wet from something else to me. Clean it off as best you can and keep an eye on it.

Hose looks like it rubbed against something due to the pattern. Doesn't have any of the bubbling near the fitting I'm used to seeing, tho that's not the only failure mode.

These hoses are made with tiny perforations all along the side. The weeping has subsided and I believe the fluid was from saturation caused by another hose leak.
