How did they do it

We are new to a 2004 Designer 31RLS, that suffered a tire blowout with the last owner. When the left rear tire blew, it took out the wiring to the slide and two brackets that may have held the wiring when on the road.
I would like to replace them and will be able make them, but need to know what they were / look like.
Can any one one send me a photo of the underside of the slide behind the left rear wheel?

Can't help with your wiring problem But I suggest that you check all other tires for their date of MFG and if more than 5 or 6 years old suggest you replace them

I say this because the tires that were on my 04 started to separate and I found out they were 12 years old In the process of having all new tires including the spare installed I was lucky and suffered no damage

Good luck in your repairs

The wiring is going to be a real pain unless each wire was color coded at both ends.

If you've got more than 1 slide, look around the underside of the others for clues on the construction of the brackets.

For starters Jayco will provide a wire schematic to follow if you e-mail with your vin. If it's a standard rail slide then I think that most any of the main slides have an arm that runs under the center of the slide with flexible conduit attached. If you head to any local dealer and look under you will see what I am talking about.
Both of my units have about a 3-4 inch flat steel plate and 3 door hinges to allow for flex in 3 locations. The frame, outside slide wall and mid-way between the 2 points.

If you can you order that piece depends on several things. Best to go to Jayco first.
