I have used Sharkbites for quick repairs.

Jim, you are very correct! Trying to do your house with Sharkbite would break any bank. If you have the tools and the proper crimp fittings, I am sure it would be cheaper.

For the little bit of work in the typical 5th wheel camper, they work for me.

The lower one is closer to my install. However since the plumbing is a down hill run to my drain as it is; just adding a valve will keep the "pink" out of the tank in the future.

Since I have the tools I use them where I can. I've made several rv repairs at campground neighbors
