I wanted to look before I posted. On our unit the Accuflex has silver clamps that are specific to Accuflex. Since I have not had leak from any of this hose in an RV, I asked a friend at CH Reed a company that handles Accuflex how he would make a repair if he could not get the Accuflex coupling tool. His answer was a regular high pressure hose clamp. He said he would use brass fitting, but in the RV they use plastic.
