Valve Question

After de-winterizing my TT (2013 X23B) I turned the valves to the water heater back to position and I have a leak where the actual knob valve is. Does anyone know how to get the silver clamps off that holds the lines on connected to the valve? I have a leak on the back side of the knob (underneath)....Is there a sealant that I can use or just replace valve knob?

If it looks like this than its a single use , pinched clamp. You will need to replace with traditional type clamp, or purchase tool and new pinch clamps

You have to pry the pinched part open, and in the process will probably tear up the hose.

If there is enough slack in the water line, you may want to just cut it (slightly below the clamp ring) and replace the valve with a "Shark-bite" push on valve. I do a lot of plumbing work in manufactured homes that use PEX tubing. I have found these easy to install and they last much longer than the cheap plastic ones they use in MH's and RV's.

Use a pair of side cutters.

Or score it with a hack saw. You cold also try re crimping it.
