I would suspect you did not get the flex tube threaded correctly when you re-connected it or it's not tight.

Old coot - the leak is behind the wall. Not at the fitting.

Found the leak. A pinhole leak caused by a staple. The staple came out of the flexible tubing hose when I drained the toilet hose and valve. I used a coupling. A pretty easy fix. I started to use Pex, but I would have had to change out multiple fittings to switch over and the work area was very tight, so I found a coupling that seems to work just fine. Thanks for all the feedback.

Just keep a close eye on it for a few days...I thought I had mine licked too, then after a couple days the bulge in the outer jacket happened and it started leaking again....hope that won't be the case for you but just keep an eye on it to make sure.
