Water hose connection leaks on my 2015 Freedom Express

Water hose connection leaks, appears to come out around threads. Tried two washers, didn't help. Anyone have the same problem and solved it?

Try wrapping the threads with some teflon tape.

A slight 1/8 to 1/4 turn with a channel lock (pliers) after it's hand tightened should do the trick!

X2 I always carry a roll of teflon tape. Better than over tightening with pliers IMO.

Thanks guys, tape didn't work, got a machined brass hose end replacement and that stopped any leak.
