3050 stove propane line kinking

I have an issue with my propane line that feeds the stove, it is connected in a side compartment and is plumbed into the bottom of the slide. when the slide is deployed the hose comes out from a chute, the problem is when the slide is retracted the hose does not feed back into the chute and gets kinked so the stove won't light when the slide is in. has anyone had this issue, is so what was the fix. I tried several thing but to no avail.

Mine did the same thing when new except it kinked when the slide was extended. I used a few tie wraps to secure it to the surrounding bracing. Works fine now.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Same issue with mine, no flow when slide was in. Solution for me was to remove a few of the tape wraps that held the hose to the bungee cord. I made sure the bungee was secured to the hose only enough so that when the slide was in the last tape wrap was just visible coming from the chute. I also looped the hose a bit to take up some of slack just before the hard pipe connection where it exits the compartment.

Sometime in 2019 they changed the routing. I believe it now follows the power and water route under the bed.
