Can you provide the Amazon link for the one that worked for you? I'm thinking about replacing mine.

The one I got is aShinestar 12in RV propane connector.

This is an inverted flare connector. I think that the way you tell them from an NPT is that looking into the end of the connection, the tube walls are beveled, not straight pipe.

On the one I had trouble with, the leak was between the brass on the end of the pigtail and the brass on the regulator.

Thanks for the link, I'll have to look at my hose end the next time the camper comes home.

Inverted flare trick. Tighten it and loosen it. Repeat a few times and it will seal. Sometimes the initial tightening on a new fitting will leak.
