Transmission problem
2005 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic

I attached dry weight 2.500 lbs Travel trailer on my SUV first time last Saturday. By the VIN number towing capacity on my SUV is 3.500 lbs.
Next morning I noticed transmision fluid is leaking.
I am not sure if the towing could cause transimiton leaking? Thank you so much and have a nice day.
Do you
have the same problem?

NO towing should not cause a trans leak it probable just a freak thing that it happened at the same time. Now where is the leak coming from?

Is there a chance it could have been overfull at all? If it was then when you towed it heated up the fluid a bit more then it usually did and it leaked out the vent.
