Tranny leaking at overflow..

Well a couple a weeks ago I had the oil changed and tranny flush and filter change at local ford dealer. We left on vacation pulling our 5th wheel and got down the road and tranny fluid was pouring out the top or looked to be. I called ford dealer and asked if they could have over filled it. They said no way. The computer does the flush and said it know exactly how much fluid to put in. We got to a camp site and the next morning when truck was cold I checked level. It was over the top of the hot side. I then to it to a ford shop close by and had them look at it. They came out and said it was 2 qts high or over filled. The wanted to charge me a tranny flush or about 150 to fix it. And said it was ok to drive like it was it was and would blow out extra fluid..... Does this sound right and has anyone ever had this happen. I checked the level again this morning and it is still above the hot side when eng is cold.

Drain some. Too full can foam the fluid, which is not good.
But yes if you overfill the tranny, it will blow it out the overflow.
