Water Drip

I can't get the hose connection to my 2015 Freedom Express to stop dripping. Tried two washers, still dripped. Appears to be from around the hose threads. Older hose, new trailer, any suggestions?

Either try a new hose (you said this was and older one) or put a new end on it. I just had this problem last weekend and luckily I keep a spare end with me in the camper. After installing, no more leak.

Have you tried using some teflon tape on the threads?

Dunno what I'd do without Teflon tape. I use it for so many applications there's never any around when DH needs it for something.

Even used it to wrap around the grooves of the bumper plugs, then tapped the plugs in with a rubber hammer. They haven't budged since then.

I've used it on stripped screws for various issues here at the S&B as well.

Absolutely, I'd try Teflon tape on the male end threads of the water hose. We had the same annoying drip on a NEW hose for the V-Lite fresh water supply.

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
