Water line replacement

Hello, we have a 2018 XLR Boost 31QB. Somehow, we developed a small cut in the corrugated water line used for the fresh water fill. I bush fixed it with some silicone and it held for quite awhile, but the leak is back. I'm assuming properly repairing this line is out of the question (if not, I'm all ears), so I'm wondering if anyone has replaced the entire line...and if so, how much of a job is it?

Thank you!

Anything is possible, not sure how difficult but how about cutting the hose where the repair was made and install a barbed fitting with hose clamps.

I would do that, but the line is the corrugated type. Not sure exactly how to make a repair with a water tight seal.

A barbed hose connector will seal very nicely on corrugated hose with worm clamps. Most of that type hose is smoother on the inside that what you see on the outside anyway. Remember it isn't pressurized.
