Kinked water line to fridge 2015 4369

I have an issue where the waterline going to the fridge kinks when the FWS is pulled in. I can tell this occurs when there is almost no water flow out of the fridge door. The kink in the line specifically happens in the scissor bracket under the slide. When the slide is extended all is good. My concern is that the waterline will split at some point and start leaking.

If its plastic probably will split and leak, a flex type wrap around line may prevent this from happening or a flex line spliced in middle around the flex corner of scissor bracket may help.

Mine did the same thing. I made a metal support that kept the curve in the correct shape. I tie wrapped the meta curve to the plastic line and wrapped it in tape. If I recall, there were some metal fingers on the folding at that bent over the hose to keep it in place. It took a few trial and errors to get it right.

Mine does the same thing when the slide is closed...no water. Thanks for the ideas.
Another to add to my list of winter projects.
