Slide out wiring retraction plastic bracket.

I just need to know where to order/get one of these... for a Rockwood M-2104s

20200630_203722 by rynegold, on Flickr

Somewhere along the 4k miles we traveled (actually the last 300) it has broker loose.

(1) What is this called?

(2) where can I get one? I assume it's a common item on slideouts.

Thanks and regards,
mitch

Better Price and is what comes on the Rockwood, I replaced three of them in two years on my Rockwood. What breaks them is they staple them into the aluminum, I modified mine so they pivoted at both ends which stopped the breakage.

Wire support

I have had to replace both on my Flagstaff. Make sure you match the pre-made curve, old VS new. The 1 st. one I had to replace was due to FR installing it backwards under warranty. Replace small head screws or staples when remounting. Use hex head self tapping sheet metal screws, 5/16" head. Add an additional screw where it mounts on the outside rail-make a "triangle" w/ the 3 screws. The wire straps crack and break at this spot, this larger head gives more surface contact area and better support. After replacing these on several trailers, more than once, this been the fix. It has held for 2 years.
It you have broken several wire straps,you may need to move screws to prevent too acute an angle on straps when you put slide in or out.
PS-I have learned to carry several of the "Plastic ball and elastic strap" tarp tie down to fix these wire straps when they break on a trip. I have saved myself and others w/ one or two of these straps and zip ties.

Mine broke off at least I wasn't going down the road! I actually fixed it using a door hinge on it used pop rivets on the plastic end with washers for keeping the plastic from breaking again. it works better than original as the hinge has more support for the plastic and it gets less drop when extended.

Plastic

Great idea w/ hinge! I beat a gate hinge would work well. Much better idea and saves the $25 they get piece of plastic strip to replace. A lot of trailers use the same Lippert part.

I replaced 2 of these straps. First one from Lippert. Price wasnít bad, but shipping was $30. Went to Amazon for my 2nd one. Easy fix.

These are terrible. Mine when putting in the slide out dropped down below the slide mechanism. It broke rubbing on the tire. It also rubbed through the slide out wiring. What I did was put a hinge where the break was. Also put a hinge on the outside spot on slide out but pointing more up.
Now each time I put in the slide I make sure it hasn't dropped below slide out mechanism. So far no more issues.

My silverback has a different size on each slide. They have both broken at the slideout connection. Replaced both with heavy duty fence gate hinges.
