Default Hose connections

I found there are no valves on my coolant loop from the engine to the rear of the coach. I plan to insert ball valves in the hose behind the right bumper area. They will not be screwed into the piping, rather inserted in the hose with barbs. Is there any reason I could not use the nylon barbs instead of brass ones? Not a lot of pressure and they are insulated from the vibration by the hose.

Domestic hot water is about 140/150*, coolant could be 195/200*

Gardner, A suggestion sir. If you place those ball valves at the front of the bus, should a leak develop in the chassis heat or the water heater heat exchange, you could turn it off until the leak was fixed.

I relocated all the valves behind the right bumper and add two to the heator core incase it sprang a leak I used brass gate vavles and pipe for the barbs and reused all the brass 90. Had some pics but the camera screwed up got to take more and will post them
