Flexible Conduit Issues

I have a 2014 GT 328TS that has been in for repair several times (under warranty) due to issues with the main slide's flexible conduit. Under the TV, at floor level, it the slide electrical wires wrapoed in flexible conduit. The conduit is supposed to exit through the floor as the slide is extended, but rarely makes it through without bunching up in a big wad. This has caused the conduit and the carpeted housing at floor level to break apart a couple of times, and repaired. The last "fix" by the dealer was to mount a metel piece at the hole in the floor meant to guide the conduit through the hole, but it doesn't work as intended.

Has anyone else experienced this issue or suggest a better fix?

I've attached a picture that shows the carpeted housing and part of the metal guide installed as a "fix".

Don't have a solution but have the same problem now on my 328. Just happened on this trip. We are going across country right now. I've been "helping" to feed it over to the side so the slide will open all the way.Click image for larger version

After trying to put the plastic pieces back together two or three times I finally removed the plastic all together (once the links are broken they never hold together properly again). I watched the cable very carefully the first 10 or 12 times I put the slide in and out and the cable goes in the hole smoothly and has not bound up one time in the last two years.

We had same problem with our 328ts. After dealer replaced the plastic conduit he added bungee cord under the floor to pull conduit thru the hole. There is an wooden access panel to this area in the cargo hole below the dinette slide. So far no problem. Good luck. Ours is 2014 happened when brand new.
