The top pic looks like a stick on zip tie mount. Looks like the double sided tape gave out. Is there a clean spot that looks like this used to be stuck to?

Yes, on the back of the cable bundle and the piece attached to the slide out, however, there is not sticky residue to indicate it was attached there. I now think the plastic piece on the back of the bundle broke off from a piece on the slide out and the clean spots is where it rubbed to the break off point. I will research further.

Ahh, my mistake. I looked at the zoomed in pic....looked like a zip tie mount on the bundle. Looking at your original pic, I see that that is the end of the plastic strap.

I am going to give you a WAG and say that is where it goes.

Good Luck!
Saw and was thinking the exact same thing. X2

My 2016 Cedar Creek Silverback 33IK did the same thing. I believe the plastic strap was attached to the bracket in one of the photos and would flex as the slide moved in and out. I took a small hinge and attached it to the end of the plastic strap with machine screws and nuts and then attached the hinge to the bracket. I had to watch the slide move in and out to make sure the hinge was positioned correctly.

That sounds like the solution. Would you be kind enough to post a photo so I can do the same thing?

Thank you, very much.

Tex50,

Thanks for the pics.

It sounds like I should be prepared to do the same repair on my CC 36CKTS.

Thank you all for your comments. Based on those comments I realized that the backing on the bundle of wires was attached where the 2 screws were, and broke off just before the screws. I removed those two screws and the broken backing. I will move the backing a few inches, drill new holes and attach them with the screws. Problem solved.

This is the part that is used a lot for slide wire looms. https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories...LC1346281.html

Flex Guard Slide-Out Kit

If you're replacing what appears to be missing from your photos, you'll need a Lippert Flex Guard Slide-Out Kit; they come in single, double and triple widths to match, in theory, the number of wire runs needing support. You can search that phrase on Amazon and find them as well as from other online sites. I'm looking at a triple right now that sells for $36.20 each.

I repaired mine earlier this summer and they need to be replaced. Although I have only a single wire run I'm going to replace with either the double or triple to provide a better, more stable and stronger bridge for those cables.
