Water leaking at fresh water input

I connected my water hose to my tt 2012 Wildwood DLX for the first time since I bought it and it is leaking water right at the connection. I tried taking it off and back on a couple of times but still leaks. Any suggestions?

First thought is there should be a rubber washer inside the end of the hose. If it is missing ot damaged the connection will leak. Sorry if I am starting the obvious.

I should have mentioned that I did place a rubber washer inside the connection.

You don't attach the water hose to the FW tank fill, only to the city water connection and the black tank flush connection.
The FW tank fill is only threaded for the cap, not the male end of a hose.
Unless something has changed.

Sometimes the brass ends on supply hoses are cheaply made and distort easily,if not the hose the shore water supply assembly on the RV can be replaced without much difficulty or money! Youroo! !

It is connected to the city water connection, not the tank. There isn't a connection for the tank, just a cap.

Ditto - distortion of the male end of the hose has happened to me a couple of times over the 18+ years we've been RVing. Try another hose just to see if that may be the problem.

I've found that a 90 degree brass connector helps a lot and takes the distortion off the connector.

Yep - good thought. I use one since the hose comes up through the bottom of the wet bay.

I had a similar situation last year and found out the connector was damaged when I blew out the system. Forgot to reduce the air pressure on my compressor. Changed it out this spring and all is good!
