Pink fluid leaking

I moved the MH a bit in the driveway and noticed a small amount of pink "gel" like fluid on the pavement.
What could it be?

What area of the chassis did it appear to come from? I had some "pink" stuff spot my storage when I first got my MH. It was directly over the rear, right leveler jack. Long story short, it turned out to be coolant from a hose fitting that diverted hot coolant to the motor aid part of my hot water heater. Replaced both fittings. Fixed that right up.

If you have Hydro-hot system that fluid is pink and if it is leaking the level should be low in the tank. Tom Essex

Could be tranny fluid. Try and figure out what part of the coach it may have come from and you will find your answer very near.

Could be tranny, most likely hydraulic fluid from your leveling system. Chech your lines and rams for leakage. Best of luck!

Does it smell sweet? What color is the coolant in your rig? It sounds like ethane gylcol. Transmission fluid is more red than pink.

Pink = tranny fluid, hydralic fluid, possibly antifreez. Locate where it's dripping crawl up under the MH and see what's there. It could be a hose, a seal, a loose connection, or a hole in something.

Red Transmission fluid turns to pink gel when touched by water

If you left a water system drain valve open, moving RV could dump some RV winterizing fluid on the ground if it's still winterized.
