Finding shut-off valves

Pictured are valves on my friend's motorhome. The top valve is leaking. Behind the wall are pex waterline connections. Where do I find shut-off valves for pex that also have the threaded neck so they can be attached to the wall? I have all the tools and knowledge for replacing the valves, just need to find the valves. The valves don't have to look like the ones in the picture, they just need to mount to the wall.

Google " Shark Bite " fittings for pec. You'll find what your after ; even available in brass with lever handle. My local builders supply has them , no need to shop at an RV store.
Recent post on a similar issue I'll try and track it down.

Didn't find anything searching for that. Besides, I won't use Shark Bite for that. I want the regular crimp-type pex valves. Be grateful if you can track it down.

May just need o-ring or packing replaced. Tightening the nut may work.

If tightening the packing nut doesn't help, demount the bad valve and take it to a big plumbing supply house. They'll have something.
