Plastic cable support under slide out

The plastic flexible support that holds the electrical and gas lines has broken. Anyone know of a place to get a replacement?
Thanks, Ron

In the past, there have been a couple of fixes. One is to fasten a square door hinge to repair it. The other is to use cable ties and drill some holes to repair it. If you insist on the regular repair, I am sure there are sites available to get a replacement, but I would think the same thing would happen again.

For the original I'd call Keystone customer service and find out who makes them or just order it from a dealer.

I second Bingos assessment. If it were me, I'd fashion a repair that would last... perhaps a piece of an old tire. shaped and drilled to match the original.

The door hinge has been a preferred solution for years. Inexpensive, durable and easy to install.

I used the door hinge on my last SOB and it worked great. The plastic breaks where it is required to bend so the hinge solves this problem. If I have any break on the current Monty I will use the same repair. Tim

Ditto on the hinge. Just get a nice big one and use stainless hardware to connect it to the plastic. I did mine 6 years ago--end of problem caused by a VERY POOR design. But it is probably INDUSTRY STANDARD in the RV world and the manufacturers will not spend 10 cents to fix it!

Door hinges have lasted 5 years. Thats way longer than the original setup.

I had some very large tie wraps that were about 3/4 of an inch wide. I used 3 of them like a hinge about 2 years ago and they are still fine. Now if I had not had the big tie wraps I probably would have gone and looked for a door hinge.
