Compression fitting leak

That could be the answer. I've thought they went on with a shot of WD40 for lube, but rectorseal might do the job, too.

Cut out the tubing with the two compression fittings. Longer piece of tubing. Two couplers, and a bit too much silver braze. Lots of heat from a mapp torch. Inspect with miror and flash light. Put some silver braze on a part of the fitting that got missed. No leaks, any more.
Tape the heater tape back on, wrap some black foam insulation around, and tape on with electrical tape.
Good until the next leak.
