battery tray wearing battery cables

Just a headsup. We just purchased a new 2020 Alante 29s. WIth the virus curtailing our travels, I spend most weekends puttering and getting to know the new toy. Being a long time boat owner and NEVER having enough batteries, as part of the my purchase, I asked the dealership to install a second battery. While inspecting the new install, I noticed that the sliding try was rubbing on the battery cables at the back of the tray and the battery cables would also occasionally catch on the tray slider preventing it from pulling out.

I've owned the RV less than a month and with only 1400 miles, there was already minor wear on the cables. Most of that mileage was the delivery BEFORE I even owned, thus I expect that in matters not with a 2nd battery. I had some plastic tygon tubing on hand so I slit it and then fitted over the several cables. Eventually, I will find a place to provide an appropriate method to lift and hang the cables.
