I ended up sweating copper back in. The freeze had burst the hot water line in about 5-6 places from the bathroom to the kitchen. The union at the kitchen was the last good joint. So here's the deal. Once the water freezes inside a pipe it stretches/ bulges it out and you can't fit a union onto it anymore. I had no choice but to replace the pipe back to the union. Since I had to sweat the pipe anyway figured I may as well just replace the whole run with copper. It wasn't the prettiest job I've ever done but it holds pressure now, no leaks.

I've changed all my RV plumbing to flexible vinyl and hose clamps (like a boat). All connections and joints are grouped and accessable. I've eliminated 50-75% of the connectors. I also replaced all my drains with flexible 1.5" hose.
