Ice maker hose leak

I just pulled out our refrigerator to locate a water leak and found the plastic water line dangling. It was simply not connected. I pushed it in place and realized that's how it came from Winnebago. There were no clamps, connections or anything to hold it in place. I guess from 12k miles of driving it worked loose. I can't believe it was just pushed in and that's all. I glued it back in and put double sided foam tape around it and a clamp that would hold it in place with pressure, the hose is way smaller than the fitting it goes in so I wrapped them with the foam tape and tightened down the clamp. Then I duct taped the hose to the back of the fridge to hold it down so it wont flop around while driving. Hopefully that should do it...... So if you have an Ice Maker you may want check on it's connection before you get/notice the water.

My ice maker was installed with 0 inches of slack in the line. All lines are subject to expansion and contraction due to temperature changes, and it is standard to include a 12" loop to accommodate for this. My line finally wore thru and leaked, I luckily caught it right away.

The RV industry has great designs (easy stuff) assembled by people who display no pride in workmanship. I was just reading about hidden primary fuel filters that are not documented anywhere?!? Can you imagine an airplane built like this?
