Default Weeping Trans cooler lines?

Hey guys whats your opinion on weeping tranny cooler lines? mine are "weeping" at a rubber connection that goes to metal. the fittings look damp but no signs of actual leaking. trans does not get up to full operating temp but fluid level is exactly where it should be for the temp the transmission is at.

How serious is this? can i just keep an eye on the fluid level and add if necessary? or is this likely to self destruct and take out the ol 545re lol

TIA

I responded to your PM, but just so everyone can see, I'd replace the lines if they're leaking. Its not super urgent since this is just a class 1 leak now but the thing with leaks is they get worse and never better. I don't think this is the reason it isn't getting up to temp
