The pipe went on fine but weíre still getting a small leak at the connection point. Wondering if anyone else had this problem and if you found a solution? Weíve tried epoxy putty and that somehow still didnít fix it. Current solution is a bucket under the sink.

I wrapped it in flex tape

Have the exact same issue on my 2012 Flagstaff MAC 228. It is a poor drain design. The issue in my case is not just pinching or flexing - it is also rot. Because the hose connects OVER the spigot at the wall (i.e. the diameter narrows) there is always a tiny bit of crud that will sit in that location, no matter what. Over 7 years this has caused the hose to rot - as evidenced by it becoming "gummy" at the end near the wall where the crack appeared. A drain should properly have an increasing or constant diameter all the way to the outlet. In any event, I am planning on replacing with a hose that has flat sections for the clamps, b/c, as mentioned above, this also puts stress on the hose. It is also quite difficult to reach inside the narrow slot - I managed to disconnect the clamps at the wall side after some struggle, but haven't disconnected at the sink side yet - we went on our last trip and just didn't bother with the sink, but I hope to get fixed for next trip.
