Outside kitchen sink leaking

Does anyone have the same issue??? The lines running into the outside kitchen taps keep loosening themselves off after I tighten them after opening and closing a few times causing a leak when opening and closing it. It is REALLY frustrating. The trailer is going to the dealer at the end if September for warranty work but in the meantime, it's driving me absolutely nuts!!!

If it is a threaded connection, take them off and add 6-8 turns of Teflon tape and then thread the fitting back on.

Tried that. The problem is that the line swivels slightly when you open and close the counter that the sink/hotplate are on. As a result, over time, it loosens causing a small leak.

I think this also may be why my water pump pulses when I turn the tap on full in the kitchen or bathroom.

Yes, same issue. I just check them every time I pull out the sink. I would think some sort of swivel connection would fix the problem, but I have not looked into it yet.

I was thinking about something like that as well. Too bad we have to come up with stuff like this as you would think the "engineers" who designed these things should know better!!! Now if I could only fix the kitchen slide contacting the awning, I'd be reletively happy with the trailers design!!

I've never had a problem with my outside sink.
