Default Roadside leak in Provo UT

The Knightsbridge mobile world headquarters is leaking while John is on a road trip. Below is a picture that he sent me.
Here is what we know:
Brand new clutch assembly installed last week
Transmission is full of fluid
Drain plug is tight
Fluid doesn't smell like gear oil
Nothing draining out of the bell housing drain plug

Any suggestions?

I have this same thing going on....


I've managed to ignore it, but when I drive long distance, it leaves spots when parked.

How long is a piece of string?

Monitor the transmission/transfer case fluid levels while on the trip and deal with it in the workshop when it gets home.

Pull the shift boot and look @ breather fitting on top

I'm just seeing this - I'm ~20 minutes away from Provo. How did this land?

He is checking the level daily and back on the road. It will get sorted out When he gets it to Defenders Northwest.
