Ya..got tired of connector leaks myself. So I went to my plumbing store and bought a Delta lavatory extension. It had a male and female fitting on it for extending standard lav supplies. I cut off the crimp and removed the fittings. The fittings are 3/8 by 1/4 insert. They don't stop when disconnected but no issue for me. Use a 3/8 compression by 1/4 or what ever the thread size is on the tank. I did put a stop on the tank since the lav fittings don't have a stop in them...and it cost me 3.50$
..any port in a storm..

JoeCB; I'm not sure about the exact labeling of the packages, other than they had the BRP letters and logo. Made in China? Quite possibly.
Rudderless; I appreciate your info! I'd kicked around the idea of bypassing these fittings, but hadn't gotten any farther. I'll check out the hardware store options, (with caution. I know fuel lines and fittings are important and not to be played with).
I still think the fittings I got were the wrong size, and will report back if I can get some actual measurements.
Many thanks to all.
Alan

Wonder if a tool like what I make for the 2 line tank would allow the o-ring to be replaced in these plastic units??

I have some fittings at home. looks like time to experiment...LOL

To replace the O-ring in plastic units use a paper clip bent with a hook. Have done many this way.
