Hmm. Do you have the plastic channel guides that the wires/hoses attach to? Those seem flimsy to me (already had one crack).
Sorry to make you go out in the snow and muck. In CA, we forget about things like that when we are at 70 and sunny (don't worry this summer when we have no water, the forests are all burning, and the state files chapter 11, you can get back at me).
