Slide out wires hanging down

The wires to the slide out are hanging down on my TT.
Does anyone know where I should hang the wires to safely attach them so they do not bind or cause a hazard for when I pull in the slide out?

Any info on how to hang or reattach them would be helpful also.

There is usually a flexible holder (plastic) that the wires are attached too and keep them up and away from moving parts....pictures borrowed from OC.....

Thanks, that photo helps a lot.
I'll buy some loom and get it corrected.

Ours has a cable tray that's hinged in the middle attached to the frame and the slide out that unfolds.

I noticed a similiar issue with mine the last time out. The plastic strap that the wires are attached to was broken. Mines headed in for a warranty fix this week.

Good luck on your issue that looks wild!

Hi,
What you need is the "Flex Guard" from Lippert. Not sure why your is not on there?
You can purchase a new one directly from Lippert .

The problem with the flex guard is the way it attaches to the trailer.When the slide goes out it flexes the platic guard to the breaking point.I found mine broken before we mwde our first trip.My fix entailed using a 3"tee strap hinge mounted to the frame and the strap part screwed to the plastic guard.That way it can travel out to the 90 degree bend that it takes to get the slide out.It has worked for 4 months now and countless in and outs of the slide.Hope this helps you,Dave
