Slide out pulley problem

I have a 2019 cardinal luxury 43 ft 5th wheel. With 5 slides and front living. Model is 3700flx. The bedroom slide out which has a cable system has ripped the pulleys off of the wall on one side. What I need to know is if there is some structure in the wall behind the paneling in order to re attach to. I am trying not to tear into the actual wall just to check for any structural blocking or framing members in that area of the wall. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank Randy.

we have a 2015 cardinal and had the same problem. we cut through the luan wallboard to see what the pullies were anchored to. in our case there was some OSB board in the wall. we bought a piece of steel plate that was larger than the pully plate. we used several larger diameter screws to anchor the steel plate to the OSB. then used self drilling screws to anchor that pully plate to the new steel plate.

in our case the pulley was pulled out because the cables were loose and the cable adjusting blocks interferred with each other. this caused the motor to pull the pullies off the wall.

make sure you adjust those cables properly!!! there a several videos of how to do this on youtube. look for 'how to adjust BAL accuslide cables".

Thank you for your response, i believe my pullies were ripped off for the same reason, i knew the cables were starting to get a little slack but didnt think they were that loose.
