Green oily stuff on my left front stabilizer on a CS-S

i have noticed a green oil substance on my left front stabilizer. Does anyone know what it is?  Also, when looking under my [email protected] CS-S in that location, there is a tube sticking out. What is that for?

    Hmm... does it look like antifreeze?  I am not familiar with the CS-S, but that tube might be the glycol overflow drain.  Maybe someone with a CS-S will chime in, sorry!

    Yes, the CS-S model has the Alde glycol reservoir behind the cargo door in the bathroom. Open the door, armed with a flashlight, small mirror and a Sharpie pen. Use the Sharpie to highlight the markings on the reservoir so they are more visible. Use the flashlight to help you see the level of the glycol. It should be between the max and min.

    I noticed that once on one of my first trips, but the condition did not persist, so I did not worry about it.  

    I suspect when the glycol tank is filled to the full line, towing the trailer over bumps may cause some sloshing in the tank, and cause a small amount of fluid to exit via the vent / overflow tube.  

    Just a theory, never explored it myself.

    It happened when my trailer was sitting for a long time. I'll mark the tank and see what happens. Thanks!!
