The Sharkbite fittings do not use the rings and crimp.
They just push on and you are done.

If you use (Pink RV) fluid in your lines also,place a shutoff valve on discharge side of pressure tank,after draining tank,close valve to keep pink out of tank. Youroo!!

That is an excellent idea. Late; but excellent.

There will be a valve in that line next year.

Wouldn't you put the shutoff on the line prior to the tank so the antifreeze didn't get to the tank. Maybe I don't understand what you mean by the discharge side of the tank. A diagram would be fantastic. Appreciate your help as I don't want to mess this up

There is only (1) inlet-outlet on the bladder tank. Youroo!!

Understand now what you meant. Thanks again for your help. This is going to be a great modification for my 5th wheel.

Youroo and Herk, could you take a look at this diagram and see if you think it will work. I am not a plumbing expert by any stretch of the imagination so any help would be appreciated.

I know Sharbites don't use crimp rings. My meaning was when doing a whole trailer or house they can get expensive. I have the tools because of this. A Sharkbite 1/2 Tee is $10.25 a pex tee is $1.95, A Sharkbite 1/2 elbow is $7.50 pex elbow $1.50. Redid a whole house last winter, hate to see what it would have cost using Sharkbites. I have used Sharkbites for quick repairs.
