Check the o ring. BCA gives you a spare when you purchase.
I’ve replaced that o ring a few times. It looks to me more like it’s leaking near the gauge but it’s hard to see with the plastic shield on. I haven’t dared to pull the hose coupler off to remove the shield with it full of air even though it should be post valve.

Yeah you should be able to disconnect. Take it to a dive shop and have them inspect. Or just spray soapy water on it and see if it bubbles at all.

Mine develop a leak too. Sent to bca and replaced for free. The bottle was 4 or 5 years old. Replaced no questions. BCA has great customer service. However I now have a klim bag and I won't go back to a tank ever again.

On the annual discharge-- I set mine off when I quit at the end of the year, and store with the bag loosely folded, instead of packed and compressed. I think I picked that up from BCA as a suggestion. Sort of like not storing your compressed sleeping bag-- they last longer.

Good to know. Ya tight folded corners can get compromised with fabric.
