Kitchen sink drain leaking - can't stop drip


I just bought a brand new coachmen chaparral 29bhs and on the very first trip I noticed the drain on the kitchen sink was leaking. It is leaking at the very first joint where the ring is threaded to the bottom of the sink drain. It doesn't matter how much I have tightened or adjusted the drain pipe and re-tightened, it continues to drip. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get that sealed up so it doesn't drip? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Not long after we got ours I dropped a pan in the sink, it landed on and broke the plastic drain.

I pulled it apart and replaced them with metal ones from Lowes.

Used this to reseal them, the factory uses something like double sided tape.

Ours leaked because the metal part of the drain didn't have any putty on it so the drains moved as we drove down the road. When I did get them in correctly I had to cut the drain pipe, twist it and add a rubber connector to get the p trap to line up with the drain pipe.
