Water Lines

Does anyone know what type (pex) and size (1/2" or 3/8") of plastic tubing was used through-out a 2004 Montana?

I want to insert a new water supply line to a new device and want to make sure the t-connector is compatible.

SharkBite t_Connector:
1/2 in. Push-to-Connect x 1/2 in. Push-to-Connect x 3/8 in. Compression Chrome-Plated Brass Service Stop Tee

You should be all 1\2" pex I'm not a big fan of the Sharkbite or any of the push on connectors just don't trust them. I have all the tools to work with pex witch makes it easy for me. Good luck with your project you can get all the pex stuff you need at H\D.

I don’t have all the tools, love the Sharkbite connectors, never had a leak using them.

I used shark-bite fittings when installing our Dometic 320 which worked well, but just purchased the attached pex tool for the anti-syphon valve replacement job. Decent quality and you couldn't beat it for the price.

Same a Builderbob. This are a must have in your tool box, you can buy as a kit at a big box store or amazon.
