Kitchen Sink Hot Water Line Leak at 90 degree connector

Hello All

In my 2012 X23J Hybrid, I have a leak for the second time under the sink at the 90 degree elbow coupler connection in my hot water line going to the kitchen sink faucet. The connection is about 6 inches to the left.

Has anyone replaced and or repaired this connection yourself? I don't feel like having my camper tied up for a month at the camper garage again.

Thank You Everyone

If it's pex you could either buy or borrow a tool to either tighten or install a new clasp.


I am sure the local HD or L store has this for about the same or less.

If there is enough slack in the line, you could cut off the PEX fitting and replace it with a "SharkBite" fitting. You won't need an expensive crimping tool. They just push on!

Why thanks 3'senough and Brownie. Showed how easy the repair will be. The original clamps were new to me and never knew what pex pipe is. Cheers!
