Water leak in SV-264

Wife and I went camping this weekend and left the trailer for a few hours. When we came back, there was a small puddle near the corner of the kitchen. I took off a panel on the bottom of one of the cabinets and there was water dripping from one of the hose connections. Not sure how to fix this since it looks like the fittings are crimped on the hose. I have attached a picture with a red circle around where it's leaking. I did have a pressure regulator on the water hookup outside and the pressure was reading around 40psi.

Cut all those crimp clamps off and replace with a QUALITY stainless steel worm drive hose clamp.

That is a odd looking Tee. You will have to check if it has Barbed ends below the threaded area. Youroo!!

I thought that as well. This is how it came from the factory. I am just glad it was only "dripping" and that the hose didn't blow off the fitting. I guess I will turn off the water from now on when I leave the trailer.

Wife & I stoped at a C/G in the Mts. of PA and we were walking around the park and saw water (Running) out of a seasonal trailer. I turned off the hydrant and went to the office to tell them,they said (Yea its been running for a few days)! This was not a (10) rated C/G. Youroo!!

the way it looks
you may be able to add a screw type clamp
next to the leaking one
shouldn't take much to stop a small leak
unless
that fitting is cracked
