Unhappy LXI water manifold valves

On my 2001 LXI I have a leak in one of the cold water valves ( Full Flow) in the 8 valve cold water manifold when it is on. Does not leak when off, has anyone had success glueing the crack? Also where can you get that type valve, as I might have to make a new manifold.

thats a home made manifold that BB made up,its CPVC fittings all glued together.
I have seen where a guy took that system out and put in a store bought manifold,a "manoblok" i think its called.
Either way,its not going to be easy.
Scott,when i had the cover over the manifold off,i sawed a notch in the lower cornen so i could get the aqauhot cover off without removing the manifold cover.
Yours may not be the same as mine,but.

I had a leak on my 2001 in that manifold - same deal as Randy mentioned. It was a series of CPVC valves that were clearly made in-house at Bluebird. We ended up having to pull the whole thing and fixing it out of the coach. I did try using PVC cement and then JB weld but neither worked. The PVC cement slowed it down just enough to get by while I was on a trip. I just ended up leaving the pump off except when we needed water.
