The final cure I am about to try is high quality metal quick connects so the washers do not take a beating on and off over and over.
And another thing I found was that I ALWAYS use a washer with a screen at the spigot, because I kept finding an amount of sand or similar small stones in the screen when we disconnected...so, the screen is between the spigot and pressure regulator. Don't know why there is stones in the water sometimes, but better safe than sorry.
Hmmm, reviewing my post - I must be a bit OCD about these type things, like the OP.
I am actually at a campground now and dealing with a leak issue, which is what prompted my original post. The campground has a store with the same angle adapters you and a couple of others have mentioned. I'll stop by there in the morning and pick one up and see if it helps. If not, they have a couple of other options as well, all seemingly under $10 so if one doesn't work it won't be a huge financial commitment to try another. They have a package of about 10 washers for about $2 as well. I might get one of those as well just to have it since that seems like a good thing to have around "just in case".
