Well, we were at Lake Powell for the last two weeks, as we have been doing every year but two since 1976. Always a great time, but the last day we had a disaster. On my coach there is about a 15 inch section of high pressure, flexible hose from the water pump to the the rest of the water system, which is PEX tubing. Last year I had a little leak develop, due to this hose having a twist in it near the PEX coupling. WRV had used PEX couplings and adapted it for use with the short section of flexible hose. I just replaced the hose. Bad decision. Well, the darn hose sprung a leak about two inches from the pump and emptied the water tank! Luckily? it was only about 20 or so gallons. What a mess! When I got home I emptied out the bay and let it dry for a day or so. Luckily I live in the desert and it is hot right now and no humidy. Anyway, I said why the heck not replace that stupid hose with PEX. Well, it was an easy job and should not have a leak issue. I would recommend doing this if your coach was so built.
To get to to fittings, I had to pull my dump hose container. I then disconnected the PEX fitting closest to the outside and pulled that one section out. I then made up a section of PEX hose at the end which would point to the water pump. You are now dealing with a two piece section, 90 degrees apart. To get a straight shot at the pump, I used my die grinder to remove some metal from the hole in the wall separating the storage area from the water connection area. This hole has power and vent hosing. This should have no stress on any joints and I hope last forever.
