Have a 2015 36RL with residential fridge and ice maker hose is outside under the slide and wrapped with foam insulation. Was in Knoxville in January when temp went down to 12 and stayed below freezing for 3 days. The line froze and I was anticipating having to replace it in warmer weather. When temp got back above freezing the ice maker started working again. I checked several times daily looking for leaks but never found any. So, I guess RW is using water lines that won't crack when frozen or I just had a lucky experience.

Ice maker line finally split open near the fitting going into the fridge,

I purchased the 20' braided line from Lowes almost a year ago. I just haven't taken the time to try to pull the underbelly down to fish it from under sink - out frame and into slide, not to mention the problems having to remove the frig from its cabinet to access the connection point. The factory service guys found it pinched under the frame, so they replaced it with the same (poly pipe) back in March.
One day I will get motivated to just get it done.
Good luck with yours!!

Ice maker line has been the only thing I've had to fix since we bought used beginning of August. The pinhole leak was caused by abrasion on the frame. I capped off the line at the faucet since the shutoff valve didn't work completely but will replace with the braided line from Lowe's and put the foam insulation wrap where the line runs underneath.
