Water leak under kitchen slide

Got to a site, opened slides, connected water and found water spraying from the hose under the kitchen slide - UGH! The white water line that runs under the slide extending into the frame developed a pinhole right at the joint that folds as the slide is retracted. Almost like itís designed to break there. Anyone experience something like this and have a creative solution to prevent it from happening again?

Without a visual, would slipping a close-fitting spring over the line right there keep it from happening? Just like the springs at the end of air hoses? Is it a straight piece of pipe, or is there a pivoting device there to allow it to fold?

Itís a white reinforced waterline that feeds the residential fridge. The line comes out of the frame and follows the folding arm under the slide. I believe rigs with the entertainment center in the slide has this arm with power and cable connected to it. The waterline is meant to be flexible but not foldable. Iíve cut the line, added a barbed male fitting on each cut and put a 12Ē braided stainless line that wonít kink. Iíll try posting pics in the next few days. One the road right now headed back to Wisconsin now that the snow has melted.

That sounds like a good fix, now that I can envision the braided hose. It sounds like the same type that's on my overflow tubes, and fresh water drains.

I've got to admit that sounds like a great idea for a repair. I know I for one have always wondered when ours was going to "let go". Maybe a little preventative maintenance might be in order.
