That appears to be a flexible driveshaft similar to what is used on power seats. Mechanical speedometers had a similar cable. It shouldn't be too hard to replace, if the shaft can be found separately. But, something caused it to twist and pull out/break. Look for something binding before attempting to operate after repair.

Wow, have the same exact problem with my 2013 Berk. Took it to the dealer today, hopefully won't tell us it not under warranty. Went out last weekend and the bed slide would not go out, could hear the motor running, but not moving at all. We just bought it in January.

Lisa,
If it is the slide for the bed, lift the bed and look for a broken shear pin on the slide mechanism.

Thanks. We took it to our dealer yesterday. We had a couple of other items that needed fixing.

I wanted to update this problem.

It was the soft shaft from the electric motor to the gearbox that was broken. Warranty covered the repair.

Last time I had the coach in for some other services the kitchen floor was gouged. The dealer covered the cost of that too.

Can you e-mail me a lit of parts/repair needed? I have a 2013 390BH and the slide is stuck in. My pix look very much like yours--the thing connecting the motor and gear box looks like some thin shaft that has silver tinsel wrapped around it. Motor runs but no tension on the chains, so I think the gear box is not engaged.

I am trying to advance order parts so I don't have to leave it at the dealer for an extended time while they figure it out.

Yup that's the same thing that broke on mine.

Sean I tried emailing you back but it's coming back as undeliverable. I'll send you the info in a pm.
