Glennlever,
Do you ever visit the mohegan sun casino in conn? I'm about 20 minutes from there,I have trays of quest,questpex and pex fittings,crimp rings and some (not much)pipe. Some of the fittings are extinct as the quest fittings and pipe were pulled off the market several years ago,I bought out several suppliers quite a few years ago,all for emergency repairs on existing systems. The light gray poly quest fittings were and are notorious for breaking when the water line has any sideways tension,especially the t's, and very regularly on the hot lines. Some lot numbers of the quest pipe also had issues with pin hole leaks,spraying a fine mist of water,sometimes so fine that you can't see the leak only feel the water hitting your hand when you run your hand down the pipe.They briefly came out with quest/pex fittings to convert quest to pex,had different size crimp rings, black on one side copper on the other side, now one of the handiest fittings on the market are sharkbite fittings,they will adapt quest,make sure that you use the insert on the quest pipe(very important) but anyway if you get in a pinch and need a certain obsolete fitting let me know. Oh and a regular mini hose clamp will hold all quest joints, pex must use the crimp rings. If you need something,send me a pm, I would be happy to help.

I'm lucky in that I have second generation polybutylene (copper fittings, no polybutylene fittings.

I have sent you a PM

I had the same pipes in my 99 bounder. I had a frozen pipe and had to replace a large section of pipe. Replaced it with PEX using these WATTS fittings. They are cheaper and easier than sharkbite, they have no crimper tools, and they come with a release tool (one with each fitting, universal), which can be used to release the pipe its connected to, and the fitting can be re-used. Zero leaks so far, just make sure to cut the pex flat.

Fittings

So a member here on the forum used to work in the manufactured home business and then later in the RV business.

He is now retiring and had left over fittings and sent me a selection.

I have a pretty good repair kit now, of both first and second generation fittings.

The concern is not so much viewing them but getting the video viewer window to appear in my posts, see the attached
