WOW!

I've never watched Ed the Plumber before! He sure is a high energy guy! Maybe a little too much energy for a Sunday morning!

Thanks for the head's up! Great show! Gotta go now and run some PEX!

Thanks again!

Sounds like markdoane, bradjun, and Sovereignrwe should schedule a weekend at the Airstream Park for a "PEX" Rally.

Not wanting to toot my own horn, but I am an Authorized PEX Installer, thanks to a one hour training session I attended at "MENARDS!"

I anyone wants to borrow my crimping tool, there is a $89 security deposit.

If I remember correctly, you have the 1/2" tool. Bradjun is looking to do the trailer in 3/8". I'm undecided on what I'm doing. My thought is that the Rally could offer training for some, help for others, and shared tools.

Are you planning to do the whole trailer, or just doing some sections.

All I have is the 1/2" model. I'm doing the whole trailer, but I might use some of the o-ring type fittings, in places where I might need to diassemble later.

Which brand of connector are you leaning toward? Will you be leaving the small copper lines running to the faucets? If so what type of "T" do you plan to use there?
