Wire supports under slideouts

Has anyone else had a problem with this? The plastic bands that the power lines to the push out are broke on both slides. Do you think this is dangerous?

Yes, I have one that is hanging by a thread. I have not yet come up with a fix.

I was thinking black duct tape, but that might get messy.

Perfect idea . the plastic on mine broke with in 2 weeks. all I had at the time was a small length of 14/2 house wire and I taped it to the plastic . worked so far ,but like the belt idea...

I used a serpentine belt as well. The wider the belt the better. Put 2 bolts/nuts on each end and bolted thru the plastic crap. Seems to work well.

Yes...I suppose you could buy a high dollar new one. Just kidding. They will probably be happy to give you an old one.

I used a piece of light weight conveyor belting, and just pop riveted it onto the broken plastic.

I pop-riveted a stainless steel piano hinge to join the broken ends together.

Just broke ours yesterday. I put black duct tape on the seam and then drilled 4 small holes on each side of the break and used tie wraps thru the holes to hold the two halves together

cable support strap issue

Hi I have a ST32FR 2012 and my cable support strap also broke on the large slide. Took it to Camping World. Took a month to get a replacement from Cross Roads. They sent the wrong one but camping World installed it anyway. The cable hangs down now when the slide is in the closed position (not good) Camping World Broke a few other parts and replaced them when I showed them. I picked the trailer up late in the day. When I was hooking up the trailer beside me was also hooking up. He was a fifth wheel. He started leaking hydrolec fluid from his rig that they were supposed to fix for him. When I saw that I decided to get the hell away from Camping World and not ask them to order the correct cable support. I have to contact Cross Roads and ask them to send the correct Part so I can install it myself. This is the second time that Camping World did me wrong.

If you reach under you can tuck the cables so they are resting inside the slide wall when traveling, I do that so that they are not hanging down as when they replaced ours at the dealer it also hangs down, not very far, but I just tuck it up into the slide and it stays no problem.

I overlapped the hard plastic and redrilled two holes and put nuts and bolts in. There was enough slack in the plastic and so far this year they have held and no problems extending or retracting.
