I've pulled the hard tanks from my 2006 malibu vride and replaced them with fly high 750s. I'm getting leaking from the flow rite disconnects when I REALLY fill the bags (i.e. bulging full where you could bounce a quarter on them). Am I overfilling the bags or are my quick disconnects bad?

Is the water coming from the bag or from the flow-rite connection? First take a look at the W736 fittings in the bag and add a little rubber cement to the threads. When your motor heats up the bag port (black threaded insert ring) will expand and may allow a leak. If it is your Flow-Rite connection try changing out the O-Ring on the W736 fittings. You can find larger ones in the kitchen section at home depot. Home that helps.

Yeah, it's an O-Ring issue. Thanks for the tip, I'll try the beefier rings and see if it helps.

Try some plumber's tape on the threads. That solved my leak, and did not cement the fittings in place, either.
