Gosh - I have a 91 limited. Would it be plumed with polyB? If yes, I have errantly used shark bites and Lowe's version of the same on several repairs last summer. Sounds like I need to redo the repairs. Guy at Ace said it was OK - he must not have an AS. Repairs were needed becasue PO did not winterize. Would you suggest a complete replacement with PEX? I don't want to have to tear the AS apart for a total redo if possible.
