I noticed a small puddle after plowing last night, poked around and saw wetness under the quick coupler.
If you look at this pic you will notice the blue and yellow lines that come up into the manifold have worked their way loose, the washers there can be spun, backed off pretty far. The red line in comparison is tight and the washer can't be moved. Just figured I'd let y'all know to check for this potential problem. Can't imagine the mess if any of these lines backed off all the way.

I think your misinterpreting what's going on.
The red only looks different than the others because the cap holder has fallen into the gap.
You need to remove them clean the threads up and use a good thread sealer, and not TAPE!

That looks like 2 cans worth of spray brake cleaner to clean it up. I use Rectorseal #5 (no Teflon or PTFE) Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene
