The replacement valve comes with a conventional hose clamp so no pex stuff is needed to replace the flush valve. The line with the OEM crimped ring is the vacuum breaker line. Instruction sheet comes with the new valve and it takes about 15 minutes to replace.

Now if Southaven RV has the part...
I can save the day by going to the Harley shop and going to see the granddaughter.
It looks like that valve just snaps in. To remove the broken one it looks like I have to press in on 2 tabs, one at the bottom and one at the bottom.

Sorry to hear that it gets so cold where you are. WE expect it up here and if it is any consolation our new AS (winterized by the factory / dealer and with stickers advising such) had a frozen flush valve, too. Easy fix, however.

Yes, that is exactly the valve I was talking about. Designed to fail in a freeze unless you blow it out or pump pink through it. Easily available on the internet, even Amazon, but your local RV place might have it. Total repair time for in and out is about 15 minutes after you scope out what to do.

I thought I had blown it out.
Next winter I will either disconnect it or run pink through it.
We have never had as long and cold a winter as this.
On the chance that I am able to procure the valve, how is the old removed.
I'm getting tired of going to the bath house to pee.
I guess I could use the commode and flush with a pot of water, but that's about as much trouble as walking to the bath house...

On the back there are one or two screws holding it in. Then the valve body has two prongs, top and bottom, that fit in slots on the toilet. You have to push one of those prongs towards the valve body with a screwdriver while pulling outward on the valve. It just pops out. To put the new one in, you just push it in place and reinstall the screws. My valve had some Teflon grease on the plunger so I greased the new one.

I see no screws- only tabs top and bottom.

How do I get that metal band off of the PEX? Pliers? Screwdriver?

All of the installations don't use the screws. To remove the band I used pliers at the crimp and twisted back and forth a couple times. This loosened the ring enough for it to slide up up the hose then pull the hose off the valve.

10-4. I was just wondering if they make a PEX "un-crimping" tool...

Dremel tool with a cutoff wheel. It should be small enough to get behind the toilet to cut the ring off.
If you don't have a Dremel tool, this is the perfect excuse, err, reason to get one. They can be very versatile.
