Water fittings

I just found a water leak and I have never done any plumbing repairs on my airstream. Can anyone tell me how to get these fittings off as well as how to replace them so I can repair this part?

Hi Callieco! That is a strange looking fitting. The white fitting appears to be a SeaTech or FlairIt fitting that most plumbing and RV shops have in stock for small repairs. The silver colored elbow is a bit odd looking. Many people have had good luck with these and the "Shark Bite" fittings that are sold at Lowe's and Home Depot. With Shark Bite fittings, you'll have to cut it with a straight cutter and replace the damaged section of tubing and fittings. There are many good threads to read about PEX plumbing here on the forums.
Good luck!

Work is never done, so take time to play!
