X2. You can find them or generic connectors identical to them at any hardware store. Get a couple in lines and a little extra pex to extend the line. I don't have a real good idea of your situation but it does sound like it's not long enough. Maybe causing the line to pull the gasket out of place and away. Also, you don't want the gasket too tight as you may actually damage it and cause leaking.

Hot water leak - repairs won't take

Definitely from the bottom of the black connector piece. It used to be leaking from the top of the black connector as well but that has been resolved.

Although, this is the first time we've had a water hook up and with our regulator, then filter inline, the water pressure is lower than when we fill the tank and use the pump. So maybe it's just leaking less because of the lower pressure.

So I was wrong here. It doesn't appear water is coming from the connector anymore. But water is coming from somewhere and I don't know where! We have it connected to water at home for the last few days. We've filled the sinks several times, drained them both, there is not a leak anywhere. But yet when we are camping, the right side of the floor is a little bit wet almost daily.

Is there any chance water is coming out of the air gap for the drain? Maybe when the grey water tank is full? It's not something we've tested as we have nowhere to drain the tank until we head out this weekend and we can't carry all that weight of a full grey water tank without being overweight.
