after letting truck sit and fuel dry, it looks like it is leaking from where the hose meets the fuel filter, bad coupling or oring.

If coupling is bad replace with small hose.

I had that problem after a fuel filter change, I just chopped off the plastic coupling and replaced with a small hose and clamped them together real tight. No problem since. Every fuel filter change I replace the small hose, just in case.
