I had a problem with that same white flex-to-pex type connection in my last trailer.
I think the I.D.'s of the two lines are just enough different that the PLASTIC
pex elbow doesn't seal well on the white flex line. I tried worm clamps and regular pex clamps on the white flex side but always got a drip after some time passed.
I wound up swapping the plastic elbow for BRASS
pex ell's and that solved the problem.
Of course to do this swap you need to buy the pex clamp tool (at least for the pex side of the connection) and I realize you mentioned you didn't want to do that. I just wanted you to know the brass ell solved the problem.
