Water heater bypass valve

The hot water heater bypass valve on my '04 2499 blew out last night. Luckily I was eating dinner with the window open at the time, so I was able to shut down the supply water in short order after hearing the dripping from under the H2O Htr door outside.

Anyway, where should I start to source a replacment? I know it is a PEX fitting, but inet searches for PEX diverter valve etc have come up empty. Are they a flared compression fitting? Thanks.

It's been a few years, but I'm pretty sure our '05 used Flair-it fittings here. RV dealers usually stock these and can get them quickly--our newer tt, and likely most RVs, use only Flair-it fittings because they are faster and simpler to install than PEX rings.

Do some research on before going to the RV dealer, but they will likely know exactly what you need anyway.

In my 2004 T2499, I agree with Henry, Flair it was it.
