If you have access to the run of PEX from the T to the washer hookup then cut it somewhere in the middle of the run and cap it. Then take the capped stub and find a way to fix the capped end higher than the T fitting. Water will drain out of the tube when it loses pressure while you're winterizing it.

Before you sell the coach just remove the cap and use a coupler to put the cut pieces of hose back together.

If you only have access to the T then remove it and replace with a straight coupler.

The only was that would work is the cut the T where the line goes to the washer and replace it with a straight coupling.

I think I will try and find the T and remove it and put a straight coupler in its place. When we sale it I will connect it again.

The camper was at the dealer getting some work done and I mentioned I wanted to make winterizing the washer hook up easier. The dealer said no problem we can do that. The dealer dded two shot off valves in the basement for the washer hook up at no charge. I was shocked.

No charge is unheard of, you must have a great smile.

But seriously, if you shut off the valves how do you drain the lines?
