Replaced cable on wardrobe slide

I attempted three previous times to include multiple photos. $30 for the cable kit and $25 for the crimping tool, along with 2 hours time.

2 hours!! Man, you're good! Took me a lot longer to change the cable on my '08 Berkshire. I guess that you are a lot younger and more agile than I am (LOL!!).
Great work!

This was my second time and the cable was still connected. A broken cable is much more complex. Did you use the bal website video as reference?

Looks like you got it figured out. We have not had any issues. If I do I just slide thru Kingwood and have a pro fix it for me.

King,
Yes, I looked at the video and YES, my cable had broken off and the broken end went inside the slide and I was not able to use the nylon 'finger' to hold the new and old cable together. I had to find a way to manually fish the new cable through the pulley system. Not an easy task but after many hours I was finally able to do it.
