FD, I did the same thing and was dismayed to find it leaking again, months later.
Here's a cool trick to keep in your hip pocket, in case that happens: since Fleetwood has some thin-walled nipples on those tanks, chances are tightening the clamp induces a crease in the nipple, and then it leaks from that point albeit later.
For a couple o' bucks, you can buy replacement tank nipples at the RV supply, cut them in half on the bandsaw and slip them after heating and stretching the original. A socket of the appropriate diameter and a heat gun work great. When the new double-wall nipple is cool, you can put two worm-gear clamps side by side, for a permanent fix.
Somewhere around here, I documented pulling out the tanks, putting bedliner down on the floor, and installing a sump drain (there was a pool of water, under my tanks, that had nowhere to go) with hose.
Believe it or not, it's a relatively easy one-person job.
But, for now you're good to go. That'll surely at least get you through the season.
