Question F250 Transmission Leaks when backing

I have a F250 Superduty PowerStroke with 66,000 miles on it. Recently it began losing Transmission fluid from the front seal when backing with a load (5th wheel travel trailer) Does anyone know what might be casuing this?

Mine does the same thing. Except tonight it puked ALOT of fluid after going up a mountain road. I'm looking for answers, but I think the only real answer is at the ford dealer with a lot of dollar signs on the end.

Re: F250 Transmission Leaks when backing

Had an older F150 that did the same in hot weather and towing a trailer.
We ditched the stock tranny cooler and put in a much better product. Presto no more leak.
Apparently Fords blow tranny fluid past the seal if they overheat. Keep the fluid cool and no problem.
BTW I now have an F350 diesel beast.
