waterlines size

I am rebuilding the inside of our AS after replacing the frame ( De Mazzel! ) some things were broken during the taking apart of the inside.
Also some waterlineconnections. I want to replace some connectors( don't know if this is the wright word) because they came apart. It is copper but i don't know the size of the waterlines.
In europe we use 15mm but i don't thinks this is the correct size. I have some 15mm connectors but they just don't fit.
Can someone tell me what size i need?

Just a small picture of our project one google earth

It is likely 1/2 inch. that would be about 12.7 mm. You may haveto replace all the water lines. That may not be a bad thing.

Outside diameter = OD
Inside diameter = ID

Are you going to use the trailer in Europe? If so, why not stick to the standard there?
