Kitchen Slideout with leaking fresh water supply

Hi, I'm hoping for some help here. Below is a picture. It's nearly impossible it reuse the six brass swivel couplers because of the plumbers cement used to seal the PVC connectors. I have heard that Newmar uses a newer simpler design, but the customer service gal was flat out unhelpful to try and get me an answer as to what it is. I replaced some of the PVC but all the 90 degree elbows are leaking. I figure I need to find swivel coupler replacements or figure out an alternative. Any body have any ideas?

Thank you,
Carlton

Once I was searching for some similar swivel joints for work, and I found that they are sometimes called "car wash swivel" fittings. Good luck with it.

You might want to try using hoses instead of swivels. My 2019 CS uses heated hoses run on the underside of the slide in the track with all the wiring.

I don't think I'd use SharkBites for swivels. They are designed for stationary use and the constant twisting would likely cause issues with the O ring seal.

Take one or both off and go to a big box hardware store. I'm sure that's pretty common. And like dutchstar411 suggested above but with a 90 on each end.
