Ice maker water line

Opened the bay door right below the slide out with the refer in it on my XL377TS and there was a big puddle of water in the storage bay. Pulled the celeing panel and found the ice maker water line was kinked in three places and leaking from one of thos kinks. Shut the ice maker water line off and cleaned up the water. Have never had a problem with this before when moving the slide in and out. I think it us a poor design and needs a more flexible line. I am going to try to find a coiled line or a stainless line to replace it. If not it will go back to the dealer as it is under warranty but right now I am in a South Dakota and my dealer is in Ohio. Won!t be back in Ohio for a couple if days. Anyone else had this problem?

I have the same issue with our 377. It is back in the shop for the 2nd time for the water line. It is a very poor design, also the steel bracket that holds the conduit that the water and power lines run thru also broke off and Jammed the slide. It is held in place by a nut that had been tac welded to the steel brace between the cylinders. They welded a painted nut on ours, this is why the weld failed. Hope they get it right this time.

Recflyer the same bracket got jammed on mine as well and in the process broke the tubing. I am out of warranty (6 months) do you know if they had to pull the wire out from the source or there is Junction box somewhere close by? If they have to pull it from the source it will cost me a bundle.

There is a junction box in the same compartment. It is behind a plastic cover next to the cover that covers the ice maker shutoff valve.

Goergew48 thanks I think you just save me a whole lot of money, the dealer we stop by to get it fixed told me those wires run all the way to the source. (I had my doubts ) meaning lots of work hours to get it fixed. He will get back to me tomorrow with an estimate. He has my rig so I Cant check it now but if he come back tomorrow with more then a couple of hours to get it fixed I will run out of there. Again thanks your my hero for the day.

water line

Dealer is telling me the same as you that the lines run all the way back to the breaker panel. Mine is still in the shop and should be out on Wednesday so will let you know. I didn't care this time as I'm still under warranty. You should check to see if the weld broke on the nut that holds the bracket and make sure they don't use a painted one. If the weld did break and the nut was painted I would ask forest river to cover it. They should never weld to something that's been painted.

There could still be junction box, this is what they told me when I dropped it off, but I did talk with the service tec manager as I wanted to show him where the weld broke on the bracket. He did not know for sure, but thought the wiring went all the way to the panel.
