2019 291Rk plumbing ?

Purchased a 2019 291 RK Sunset Trail and the gentleman told me that the hose going from the line to the outside shower was blown out when he forgot to winterize that section. Has anyone had to replace that hose? Is it hardware store or OEM only? A quick trial showed that a residential supply line would fit on the back of the quick disconnect.

I'm not quite sure what the pictures are about, but PEX tubing is normally used for water supply line. In most cases, when it freezes, the line itself is okay, but the fittings split. Once you have favorable weather conditions, you can (carefully) pressure test it with air. For repair, you will need PEX fittings, and there is a special crimp tool for the crimp bands.
PEX is available at your local home improvement store, as well as the tool.
Avoid 'quick' type fittings, like Sharkbite, as they tend to get loose with movement.
Edit: If it is only the supply line coming from a quick connect compression type fitting to the faucet, then yes, common flex supply line is what you want. Inspect the outdoor faucet for leaks, that is subject to cracking.

The top pic is the fitting going to the outside quick disconnect for a cold only shower. the bottom pic where the gray cap is where the line should go to supply the shower. I'm missing the hose going between the two. When the line burst, the guy threw the line away and just capped it. Just trying to shorten my learning curve as to if I can use hardware store stuff or have to go OEM

Ahh.. got it. Home improvement store plumbing is just fine. The ends can be various sizes, so you want to be sure to get the proper one.
