adapting water pressure accumulator to 5/8 tube?

I bought a accumulator for rv's with 1/2 " fittings, I know I can install it anywhere in the pressure side of my system. All my tubing is 5/8", what do I need to splice it in?

What year unit do you have? Everything I've owned since at least 2001 has been 1/2 " PEX.

Is that 5/8" outside diameter?

Yes.marked 5/8 od

I have never worked with pex, the 1/2 id is 5/8 od, I figured it all out. Ace sells the pex tool for $120.00 and they have a very liberal return policy. 10 crimps, 4 90's and 2 adapters got it all done. It was no help on the noisey piping that rattles that's un-accessible off the pump output.

on mine I put the foam pipe insulation in all the areas near the pump where lines made contact with the wall and added a short piece of flexible hose to the outlet end and it made all the difference in the world ... before if wife got up to use bathroom in the middle of the night it would wake me up

Another "Happy Ending", also 1/2" shark bite fittings work great on PEX and are a lot easier to work with.

are all Jayco pumps located like this one?

This is my first Jayco, it's a 99 class C 28.3' on a E4540 chassis, honestly, you can't see where the lines leave the pump and they go straight into the unit floor.
