As u can see in the pict I was able to turn the valves and at least bypass but now I have to fix. Any ideas how to pull the lines since they are crimped? Will the plastic connector that broke come off the brass 90deg fitting or is that one piece?

Hi NorthTexas

The fitting is one piece. There are all plastic 90 degree fittings and all brass. The hose clamps will come off with a pair of snipsor cutting dykes. It would be best to remove the line back to the shut off for easy removal and replacement. Take the pieces to HomeDepo or Lowes and get all new
fittings and screw typehose clamps. The plactic fitting was under stress which is why it broke. The factory water hose is stiff and does not allow ant play. I replaced all the short hoses with a more pliable drinking water compatable hose. Easier to cut and will clamp more tightly with screw type clamps. My set up will make future repairs quick and easy. In your pic you have the verticle hot/cold mixer valve shut off...don't forget to open it up after repair or you will have no hot water. The water temp at the faucet is adjusted by that valve. Hope this helps....Gary

I should have said...the closed mixer valve will cause scalding hot water at the faucet. Open it up slightly to adjust the temp.

Thank you very much. That sounds easy and a lot better than taking it to camping world for repair like I was going to do, and I wondered why there was a vertical line there. That makes sense, cool
