It's the same PEX tubing made by several different companies. It would be as good as any other for repairs or initial installation.

pex will not crack from freezing but you need the crimper to terminate the end with fittings.

Pex works well in RVs and is easy to install using push-to-fit type fittings (no crimping required). Sharkbite is one top brand of push-fit, but there are several others, including Lowes Blue Hawk house brand that is less expensive than Sharkbite. You can also use compression type fittings, e.g. Qest.

Only use the compression type if you can get the proper insert. It is SS and flared and slips inside the open end of the pipe AFTER you have slid the compression nut and ferrule onto the pipe. Without the insert the compression fittings are iffy as there is not enough body strength in the PEX pipe to give a good compression fitting.
