What is the name of these water fittings?

I am putting in a expansion tank and ran into these water line fittings off the pump, what is the name of the vinyl hose and fittings, they have a little rubbers sleeve that slides over the pex fitting, then the vinyl line, and then the grey plastic nut?

In the old days, that would be a compression fitting. The nut compresses the rubber sleeve around the hose creating a water tight seal.

I ask for PEX slip fittings and the folks at Lowes know what I am talking about.

I carry a set of 2 of each type. Unions, elbows, PEX to 1/2 NPT Male, PEX to 1/2 Female.

Now I have to add 2 PEX to 1/2 inch Hose fittings. Grrr

After our second year snowbirding, we are working on my new camper "loadout" list. I hope to publish it when we are done. DW still thinking about what to put in the kitchen and pantry. Hope to have it finalized by our June trip.

The title page is "Now Where The Heck Did I Put That."

Well, I am wanting the exact same fittings in the picture, but I can not find anything on the net on them?
And none of the trailer repair places have seen them before.
I went to lowes and home depot, and nothing?
I may have to call Forest River?
Thanks
