I do not have ESOF but past history on the subject it is probably the hub seals leaking. Do you notice the pump running constantly?

Passenger side under the hood. Behind the battery. The vac pump has three small tubes going to it. The valve next to the pump is what works the 4x4

The pump does not run continuously if everything works and no leaks. You would notice your defrost to floor not working if you had no vacuum. I still vote for the front hubs. Have you manually locked the hubs to make sure the transfer case is engaging?

Yes, I have been able to manually lock the front hubs.

So what is your recommendation at this point?

Check the seals on your front hubs or lock them manually if needed.
