I don't see pex as totally worry free. First off, I think that there is a finite amount of times that it can freeze and thaw, before it loses it's elasticity or memory to return to normal shape. Secondly, a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link. The weak link being the elbows and couplers, which I can say, are a pain to remove when replacing.

My point is, I still do the best winterizing job that I can

Copper pipe from water heater - strange size? 69 safari

PEX does not negate the need to winterize.
