Kitchen slide wire and hose raceway

Alright you IKSS or other owners of kitchen slides.
Got home from our last trip on our nearly 1 year old to the day 23 ikss and saw the hoses dangling and the broken edge of the plastic inches away from the front tire. Haven't called the dealer yet because I'm not ready for it to sit there for weeks while we wait for the part. Anyone else experience this and what have you done to fix?

Mine broke in the center. Used zip ties to hold it together. Need to find something better though.

Left vm and sent service manager an email with pics. I will use your zip tie suggestion if not fixed by our next trip. (Bear Creek at Lake Compounce).

Mine broke ad well. Used the zip ties. Seems to be working well. To replace the whole thing you would have to disconnect all the hoses and wires.

Mine came loose also. Used zip ties for temporary repair. Seems to be a common problem.

Like others have already mentioned, use ZIP ties.

I have had the same issue wit multiple 5th wheels & slides. What I do is drill three holes vertically in the broken pieces and ZIP tie together. This gives them flex. Have not had issues with the latest one that broke over a year ago. You can find replacements on Amazon. Since we camp in cold weather, they break all the time. ZIP ties are the cheapest and apparently most reliable.

Not worth the hassle to me to take to dealer, order parts, wait weeks to have it installed. 10 minutes and three ZIP ties and I have it fixed myself.

Thanks John. Dealer is ordering it. They are 25 minutes away from me. But will zip tie if not in by my next outing.

Use hose clamps and maybe find a place to attach them to a stand off bracket.

Holy Heck, have not seen any issues with mine, but have two trips coming up in November, need to look and see if that happened to me, just got my 23IKSS in April and have a small list for the dealer to work on.

Thanks for reminding me. dealer said it should be in this week. Have to hit him up for a status. If not, I'll have to do the zipties as suggested here for our next trip.
