2011 Cruise Lite 26RKSXL water heater valve

Hello everyone. We are planning a July 4th trip and I went to dewinterize the trailer. I got all the lines cleared and was going about my business and saw water coming from the water heater area. On the cold water inlet valve there is a leak that was streaming water. I know I will need a new valve but I have never seen the fittings that were holding the pipe on. There isn't a lot of pipe to split and rejoin, so I was trying to get some advice on how to fix this.

You can replace with that type, but personally I would go to the depot and get a shark bite valve. They fit right on per and are an upgrade from the plastic ones. You can get a stick of per. For about 3-4 bucks if you need additional pipe after you cut the valve out and pop a new one in real quick with the shark bites fittings and valves.
