Upgraded Faucets (Have a Question)

So this morning I replaced my bathroom sink faucet with a new one that gives me some better clearance in the sink bowl. Then I tore out my old kitchen faucet and replaced it with a faucet that has a pullout sprayer. I'm really happy with how they turned out but I do have a problem. I need to shorten the main line by about 3" as the new faucet hookups hang much lower and it is putting a lot of tension on the plastic line. Will shark bite fittings work for this or is there another method I should try?

Looks good I just broke the little plastic handle in the bath but tractor supply had a match.

Sharkbite fittings will work fine on the pex line. I replaced all of my water heater bypass valves with sharkbites. Quick and easy with no problems. Expensive but easy!

A shark bite coupling should work fine

I 3rd the Shark Bite couplings. Although, I had one go bad in my basement when I was putting in another bib. Wasn't pretty. I just wouldn't use them anywhere you can't get to. I ended up sweating copper pipe fittings and elbows instead. But for an RV...yeah.

I did use the shark bite and it worked great! I gotta say I love the new faucets! I wish I had made that upgrade the day I brought it home now.
