vent tube under radiater

There is a vent or overflow tube under a metal shield under the side radiater of my 2000 Intrigue country coach. A few drops of some type oil comes out this tube and i,m getting it on my towed car. At first i thought it was loose hyd fittings, but all are tight. Where does this tube go to? All fluid levels are ok maybe a tad low. I think maybe its hydrallic fluid. Thanks Benchrest

What color is the fluid? If red, it could be from the hydraulic fan motor, blue it could be coolant, black it could be engine oil.

What side of the radiator, front or rear, street side or inside?

Off hand, I am not aware of any vent tube being in that area. I just had my radiator replaced and they had the complete assembly out, charge air cooler, radiator, and fan assembly.

the tube is close to where the hydralic line conects to front side of radiater by the rear tire. Its not anti freeze. I think its hydralic oil. A very small amount will get dark with time and dust blowing around.

At this point, I have no idea. It is pretty wet here in the PNW so I am not going to lay on the ground and take a look.
