I have used numerous ones. Make sure the ones you get are the releasable style.

I use the similar Watts and Sea Tech push-on fittings and have never had a failure to date.

I didn't use any SharkBites in my RV (yet).
I would not hesitate to use them, I've had them on my home heating system for 15 years with no problems.

Would never use them again, flooded out my mh while winterrising, 2 gallons of antifreeze from one end to the bedroom, many different size's of plumbing in the RV industry, have a friend that had shark bite in a ceiling of his house and the whole ceiling came down, $25000 damage. Lots of fun trying to clean up the mess.

I have several in my trailer to connect PEX to fixtures etc for over 10 years.
No issues and I would use them again.
