Leaky faucet connector

I have a 2014 R-Pod 178. In the "cabinet" under the faucet is a plastic connector. One end of the connector attaches to a plastic piece where the water comes from, the other end attaches to the flexible hose, that leads to the sink. When the faucet is turned on, water leaks from the top piece of the connector. I tried tightening the connection, still leaks. I tried teflon tape, still leaks.

Went to two different RV repair shops, neither one had ever seen the connector nor could they find it online. Local plumping & big box stores were no help.

Any suggestions?

I've never seen a connector like that either. If it were mine I'm thinking I would try to take it apart and see if it had a washer in it that could be replaced and telfon tape it up real good again and give that a go. If that din't resolve it, I'm thinking I'd buy a replacement faucet and hose to fit the faucet and the fitting out of the wall you describe and be done with the weird connection forever!

The leak is up in the faucet, replace the whole thing if under warranty, if not new better faucet from HD or Lowes.
