Picture... What is this on my Winnie?

What is this plug underneith my '97 Adventurer, V10, 34ft? I can remove this rubber plug with my pinky finger!! It's rather loose and not in tight. Fluid has been dripping out of it? I took it off and put it back on very easily.

It came to my attention when the hydraulic line to my slide-out burst and i had hydraulic fuid everywhere. I repaired and fixed the hydraulic lines (busted seal on the HWH piston, replaced seal with one i got at a local shop) and the slideout works fine now. But, when i parked at Hocking Hills State Park (in Ohio, excellent place to visit by the way), i noticed hydraulic fluid coming out of this plug. I checked all my fuild levels in the engine, and all is fine.

In advance, thank you for the help, I love this website and appreciate the interaction between all the phriends!

I was told once, that was the access hole to the torque convertor's drain plug. Just as an FYI, I've been missing that rubber plug for years w/o any issue.

It is just a drain hole for the bell housing for water or oil from either the transmission or the engine, if you have oil coming out of it it would mean a rear engine seal or a front transmission seal is leaking. The bell housing is not water tight so if you drive thru deep water it is a place for it to escape.
