I can see on the outside beneath the slideout the plastic flextube with the wire inside. Mine too is secured with a clap and runs up the wall inside an aluminum tube. Every thing seems ok at this point(although i cut and repaired the wire where it passed theough the clap since it seemed crushed. Attached the right ends. The problem seems to be somewhere between the fuse box and this exterior place. Do you think i can pull it from the outside while attaching a new wire at the end on the inside, therefore fishing a new wire. Under the slideout it runs inside the slideout rails and then i dont know where since my fiver has the exterior tank heater option and is therefor covered. Here is a pic

Pictures?

Here is how mine are routed and secured. Also shows the added alum reinforcement similar to the one on the front. The first white headed screw on the bottom was the culprit on mine.

Cqn i simply attach a new wire and fish it through the sub floor.
2 weeks ago we fished a camera wire to the back of our trailer through the under belly and and from what I seen they used wire loom stubbed into the under belly then the wires where run free air. Open up the under belly closest to your panel and go from there.

Might want to start with the slide light fixture and replace those first. It might be at the fixture too.

Lopks like ill have to try, since i am pretty sure the problem lies somewhere underneath. I just cut the wir wher it starts up the wall and it looks just fine . Do you remember how to open her up without to much trouble. I would never have thought they would be just hanging loose under there.

The panels under there are just screwed to the frame and beams.
