Just had to fix a leak in our trailer...same sorta the tee coming off the cold water going to the hot water tank...crimp tool was near impossible to get in there to get proper placement of the cinch clamp on the pex....rv repair guy told me when he fixes plumbing he uses the Sea Tech fittings....same as Shark Bite except they are all plastic, he said success rate with them is close to 100%...used them on mine, and worked like a charm...nice thing is they can be removed and reused and if you made an error in measurement or whatever its easy to correct. I have since put a couple of those fittings in my plumbing toolbox...a connector, a couple 90 degree elbows, a length of the pex and good to go....most RV places carry the Sea Tech fittings and have also seen them at Home Depot.

I made it. It is a Dewalt organizer that attaches to more organizers and keeps everything in tact.

Push to fit fittings are wonderful especially for quick repairs. The fittings are pretty expensive (brass ones) but work really well and I would not worry about them in an RV. They fit copper, PEX and flex CPVC tubing (all have the same O.D.). They will stay put and not leak and as was pointed out above, you can remove them at will.

The plastic P2F fittings are good I just have a hard time using anything less than SCH40 PVC fittings or brass because of breakage during cold weather but they work just fine and are less expensive.

I just finished re-plumbing my new Atwood on-demand 50K BTU hot water heater and just having the parts to connect it all how I want is awesome!!

BTW the new tankless is SWEET!! Really hot water!!
