water supply lines

Can someone tell me what size the pressure lines on the freahwater in the RV are. I have a leak in my tub faucet supply line and before I start taking lines apart I would like to have some fresh fittings and line to repair or replace the leak when I find it.
The coach is a 2001 Winny Adventurer 38G Workhorse, but I imagine the supply lines are a comon size on most Winnys.
Thanks for any input.

Mine appear to be 1/2". But if I were you I wouldn't take my word for it. You can do a couple of things.....look it up on www.winnebagoind.com clik "Resources" then drill down to your coach plumbing drawings. Or you could call Winnebago Customer Service.

In general, they are 1/2" PEX (or if you're unlucky enough, Polybutylene (Quest). With your year rig, you should have PEX, it is translucent white, where Quest is solid Gray. Note these take different fittings if you are going to use crimp fittings, the crimp fittings also use a crimper, about $100 at Home Depot or Lowes.

They now sell compression fittings like these:GatorBite at Lowe's: 1/2" x 1/2" Tee, they use O-ring seals, can rotate and are very robust. I have started using those instead of the older compression type fittings or the crimp type because of the lack of room in the RV (couldn't get the crimper on the crimp-type fittings).

Luv2Go: Thanks for the heads up on the "GatorBite", looks like the way to go.

Our 01 adventuere uses 1/2" PEX, also known as Poly Flow. The fittings are the standard barbed style with a compression nut.

To avoid damaging the tube and the fittings warm them slightly with a hair dryer before disassembly and reassembly. Also wrap a few turns of electrical tape around the tube about a foot below the fitting before unscrewing the nut. If the nut slips down the tube it's tough to recover. It happened to me when I replaced the shower valve. Fortunately in our case the tube runs through a cold air return in the hall. If it hadn't I'd probably still be fishing for the nut.

Thanks for the help. I will get some lines and fittings from Lowes before I take the joints apart. I, too, access the fittings from an air return in the hall. It is leaking where the tube connects to the tub spigot. It is the devil and 2 dollars to access. I may have to cut a small hole in the interior panel to reach the top of the fitting.
Thanks again.
