but this PEX stuff is really nice.
I’m using the brass fittings with the copper crimp rings and it all goes together really quick. My system is very simple with only a galley faucet and and shower and toilet. It’s being made outside in modular sections, one for the bath and one for the galley.
The plumbing for the shower and toilet sits inside a still to be finished cabinet between the bed and the bath with the feed coming from under the bed. Almost everything was done outside except for the last two elbows connecting the feed lines. The crimper needs quite a bit of room.
So the only crimps that had to be done inside are the two at the top left in the above picture.
Then everything slides into place inside the cabinet.
Outside, the fills for the two fresh water tanks, the city water hookup, and the fresh tank vent are all mounted in place. They’ll just need Vulkem and final fastening to finish. These four fittings are all marine style.
58 degrees is forecasted for Saturday, so we might head for the car wash tomorrow to get ready for some outside polish work. It’s way past time for my summer uniform of shorts and flip flops.
