2015 FR Georgetown 351DS Bunk Slideout Wire Harness

Anyone else have this issue? Not sure what this does, assume it pushes the wire harness out when retracted. The carpeted "shoe" or "stop" came off the wall. There is only 1/8 plywood to secure it. Held on with cheap staple. The wire harness does what it wants since there is nothing to stop it. Anyone have a solution or can provide a picture of theirs? Pictures attached.

Maybe some glue of some kind. If you don't get a picture sometime today I will
get one from mine this afternoon.

I was thinking about using glue but wondering how much force it needs to withstand. I also have this character flaw, one of many, that when I have to glue stuff together, it is because I either don't know how to fix it properly or I have given up on fixing it properly. Seems like the cable carrier or wire carrier, whatever it is called, should be anchored to something rather than just be loose and press against this cover or boot. Usually, cable carriers are pinned or anchored on each end of the last link of the chain. If this is the way FR designed it, very disappointing. Thanks for the offer of a picture but might be difficult to get a picture of what's under this cover to see if the carrier chain is anchored or just floats. Thanks for your reply.

Well, I figured it out. The bracket that holds the cable carrier was broken off and under the slideout. Apparently the last owner forgot to mention this was broken. I can see why it is broken. Bad design, There is only about 1/4" from edge of wood securing the bracket arm to the slide out. I went to Home Depot and got a large flat corner brace and bolted to the slide out frame. It is much more secure than whatever was there before. The brace is about 2" wide. Unfortunately, I forgot to get pictures before I covered with the carpeted cover, which is another story. There is no where to attach with screws or nails, so I used hot glue. When it comes off, which it probably will as soon as one of my grandkids step on it, I will post pics. Thanks!

So I know this thread is very old, but I have the same problem. If anyone has pictures as to how the bracket is supposed to be mounted I would appreciate it. Otherwise I will have to rig something up.

I have not had a cover on mine for two years now. Works just fine without it.

Ours fell off about 2 years ago and we haven't reattached it - as long as the bracket for the cable carrier is there you should be fine - you just have to be careful not to damage it when the slide is pulled in, since the cover is missing.

I don't suppose you have a picture of the bracket and harness put together? I need to connect the two and remount the bracket, not quite sure which way is correct.

Sorry - didn't see this until now!

Not right now - but if you can wait until Friday when we go out I can take some photos for you (we don't store it near our house unfortunately, so not easy to snap photos)

Let me know if you still need them.
