Wire wrapped in loom

There is a wire wrapped in loom that hangs down from the rear of the slide on my 2014 Solera 24S. It's currently hanging free, but if it flips over (when the slide is pulled in), and can get caught in the vehicle emergency brake wires, or other vehicle moving parts. What is it supposed to be secured to??

Can you show a picture of the problem, not sure what the wire is? I'll take a look at my 24S in the morning and get back to you.

Can't take a photo because the slide is extended, so the wire is at full extension and doesn't hang down. Noticed it under the rig when the slide was in. It's attached to the rear corner of the slide. When the slide was in, the extra hung down right by the emergency brake spring. I don't see anyplace where it should have been attached. It needs to extend with the slide, or I'd have just zip tied it to something.

I looked this morning the wiring in that area on my 2013 24S is zip tied to the frame or to the propane pipe running under the rig. I don't see any thing hanging down, I put the slide out and back in and don't see what your talking about? Here's some pictures I took under the rig, let me know if I'm looking in the right areas.

Hkrek, thank you for the photos. Ive loosely zip tied the wire to the propane pipe to hold it away from the e-brake when I put the slide in. I'll check before I drive to assure it's not in harms way. Please tell me if you think this is ok. I dont want to catch the wire in the brake or other moving parts, or hurt the propane pipe.

I'm puzzled about the wiring going through the brace on your slide. I can't see my brace under the rig, it's enclosed in the rear compartment in front of the rear tires. As the picture shows the power wire to the slide is a coiled wire plugged into the brace for the slide. The other wires I pictured before don't even go to the slide they go to the back of the rig? I think you may need to have someone from FR look at this. I'll see if I can get a factory rep's attention on this.

It looks like something didn't get pulled tightly. Take the loom and zip tie it up and out of the way. There shouldn't be any issues.

Thank you, Joshua. I've zip tied it loosely to the propane line. I'll keep my eye on it!

No problem! It should be fine there but I would secure it tightly to you propane line.
