Question Splicing Plastic Vacuum Lines for Dash AC

I have a Evans Tempcon Dash AC Unit. Most newer RV's have this. The Vacuum lines are small 1/8th inch dia, and are made of a plastic like material. They are way to long and Thor (Four Winds) chose to fold them up and secure to the outer firewall with nylon ties. After time they will kink cutting off the Vacuum to the Dash AC. They are almost 3 to 4 feet to long. Does anyone know how to cut and splice them. I am sure this is what is causing my Dash AC Problems and lack of vacuum.

Is it possible to get a plastic coupler that will work?

I fixed the problem by buying some rubber Vacuum line 1/8th ID and cut the plastic and took out the excess. shoved each of the 2 ends in a 4 inch piece of the rubber hose. Works like a charm.
