I'm thinking that the easiest thing would be to use those braided flex-lines for the faucet risers as well as the toilet. They have female threaded ends, of various sizes and combinations. They come with compression threads, 1/2", and 3/8ths at least...perhaps even more combinations.

So, however your pex run terminates, the fitting on the end could be pex->1/2fpt. Then thread a flex line of the appropriate length that has 1/2" threaded on each end.

for the inlet: it depends on how your trailer is configured. Mine was set up to use a standard household drop-ear elbow, which is what is typically used for the shower riser pipe in your house. the shower pipe goes up from the tub/shower faucet inside the wall...on the top of it, there is this "elbow", which has "ears" on it for nailing to a cross piece between the studs, with the threaded hole facing into the shower. the chrome shower (male threaded on both ends) threads into that, and the shower head goes on the other end.
Anyway, the inlet uses that same elbow, only upside-down. Ears are screwed to the frame rail, just under the street side corner, and the pipe goes straight up into a hole in the banana wrap, and up into the trailer.
Instead of a chrome shower pipe, you thread a female garden hose fitting>1/2" mpt into the elbow.

here is a pic of the original inlet:

I've replaced this w/ a pex elbow and pex line running up into the trailer, but don't have a pic of it.

the garden hose fitting may only come with female 1/2" fitting on the other end. I seem to remember coupling it to the elbow with a 1/2" threaded nipple, which you wouldn't be able to see in the pic.

Certainly not my favorite topic, but I have no answer for you. My toilet has only one supply line.

all good ideas, but my toilet has pex run right to the toilet inlet and a crimp to male swivel pipe connector. Looks easy enought to do to me. probably have to make up an assembly and go back to where you have space to do the last cripm or use a shark bite there. Once I got on to the crimp fittings I have not gone back to the sharkbite.

Sounds like a good idea. I can see one for the supply, one for a hand sprayer, but a third leaves me mystified.

Although, the possibilities send the imagination racing.

Only One

The toilet has one cold water line. My guess is the other two are the hot and cold lines to the shower. Or they are for the galley sink.
