Where can I get this valve

It is a 2006 Thor Summit 22RB. I am guessing it was installed as an aftermarket piece? Any reason why somebody would installed this? It does have an outside shower in the rear.


The cold water valve leaks when I turn the city water line on. Just slow drip, but I like to replace. Note: above is the tub in the restroom.

It looks like a clamp is holding the valve/hose together.

Menards, Lowes, Home Depot in the plumbing Dept uner PEX fittings you should be able to find a valve to replace it. You will have to put on a new clamp also, but a side cutter will sinch taht together.

Thank you. Do you think this was an aftermarket installed? I am sure you know this, but I forget to state these valves are plastic like.

Those are the low point water drains and were factory installed.

I see. The holes were cut nicely so it had to be from factory

That would be 1/2 inch pex tubing, and that is not a clamp but a crimp ring. No clamp will hold it. You need a new crimp ring, and a special tool to crimp.The valve will also need a male barb on one end, to go in the pipe. Lowe's / Home Depot will rent you a tool.

Whoops, ya thats right - crimp ring-- Had a senior moment-- but i have used a large wire cutter to pull the crimp ring together, but i did go buy the tool, these fittings and crimp rings come in handy in a lot of uses..
and yes, Lowes or Home Depot will rent you the tool.

I assumed this is the drain from the fresh water line?
