My tranny did this some time back. It turned out to be a seal on the front of the tranny. The tranny guy said it's common on the 4R100s.
I had driven all over the place empty, I had towed a 6Klb Travel trailer - didn't do it. When I took our new (at the time) 5th wheel over to the coast above SF, it was spewing when I got there. I added tranny fluid while there. I drove around all over the coast for three days (not towing) didn't do it. On the way home (5er attached) it did it again.
The shop replaced the seal - hasn't leaked a drop since. I've pulled my 5er (12K) all over since, hauled loads in the bed and DD. Nothing, dry as a bone.
