As far as dealing with the PEX withuot a crimper you might also want to check out the shark bite fittings. I haven't actually used any yet but through research they've gotten amazing reviews for their performance and simplicity. Fittings are more expensive but the tradeoff is not needing all the tools for crimping. I keep a couple for splicing handy in case I need them in a pinch.

Would need to figure the threads on the valve, but I think this would be your fitting

It never worked so most likely, it is installed backwards. I'm going to take it apart next month and check it out. I have a plumber friend that has a crisper, so I will have to schedule the fix around him.

Isata 3 black tank flush

I think it might be on the other end and I really don't want to remove the business end of the flush line. Anybody have any ideas?
We just got ours early feb and that same problem along others were and are being resolved. We fixed our own black tank flush issue. It turns out they installed check valve backwards. Being handy I took the time to diagnose and fix vs taking to dealer and leaving there for God knows how long. In hindsight, we should have had dealer do the work, since it is there for other issues any ways.

Is this only on the FW or can it happen to the BH? My tank flush wasn't working the first and only time I tried it. Is it under the vanity floor?

Thanks

I'll have to check on that one. I've only ever seen the problem on the FW.
