The hot water line goes to where?
What is the line made out of?
What are you calling a tap fitting?

Sorry but this is not enough information, re-post and someone on the forum may be able to help.

Kay, if it is the gray line from the cut off to the faucet, it is cheap enough to replace the whole thing rather than trying to fix it. They come in varying lengths and are easily cut to length. You can also get braided stainless lines that are easy to install also. The fitting at the sink is probably 1/2" while the one at the cut off is probably 3/8". Post back if this is not the case and we'll take another spin.

Mobile home leak

Agree with chandler, just buy a new supply and replace, they don't cost that much. Lots of luck.
