2313 LP hookup leak

On my 2313 I have the two forward LP tanks with the twist valve to activate either can or both.

While on a road trip I saw the fridge reported a check gas light so I popped off the cover and saw the left tank was now empty. No big deal. Closed left tank, switched valve to right and opened right tank. Get a hissing from the tank valve connection to my line. Closed right tank.

Removed the connection, visual inspection, put it back on, same result. Then tested tank valve with no connection, no leak.

Swapped tanks to use the right (full) tank on the left hookup, same thing, leak. So I figured I had a bad valve on this new tank. Bad luck I thought.

Swapped out both tanks for another pair, both full. Installed and attached them. This time I just wanted to use the right tank. Same thing, leak. Left side - left tank, no leak. (Annoyed at this point, I stopped testing different configurations.)

Not sure, but I think I want to replace the right side line, as it always failed, yet the left side seems to work on the current tank. Trailer is only 18 mos old.

My question ... Could a bad coupling of the line and tank cause damage to either the tank or the connection line?

What tests do you suggest to find my leak source?

(No pic at the moment as I am still traveling)

Thanks. I ordered a new pigtail for replacement or a spare part if it turns out not to be my problem.

I return home in a couple days and will run the soapy water test.

I guess the leak could be worse based on the tension of the pigtail. Maybe they both are in need of replacement yet I only really hear the right side.

Will know in a couple days I guess.

Seems like I get to replace my pigtails about every 2 years or so. Pretty common place to leak.
