Not trying to hijack this thread, but I spent all afternoon replacing my ceased water heater bypass valve, 3 "Ts", 3 elbows and several inches of pex as I had to construct and replace everything within a few inches of the valve. Forest River sure did no favors for anyone having to replace ANYTHING behind the docking station on my Sandpiper 345RET...and I'm guessing other brands and models are designed and put together this way.
In any case, I got everything I needed at Lowes and used the pinch/cinch clamps. I bit the bullet and bought the Apollo one hand ratcheting clamp tool which was worth every penny of the $60 I paid for it. Good news is that I had no leaks when I was finished.
After all this, I still can't figure out the logic behind using that sprayer type hose along with pex. Pex has to be less expensive than the hose. I just don't get it.
