Cable hanging out of bottom of slide???

Looking at purchasing a 2019 JAYCO 25.5 REOK but noticed it has a cable hanging out of bottom of slide. Dealer says the cable is part of the slide mechanism but I feel it shouldn't just be hanging there. Potential accidents (tripping) or eventual breaking. Has anyone had a similar situation?

Our 2018 28.5 RSTS has the same issue. I used some duct tape to hold it up. It only lasted until the tape got too warm and released. I am going to either use a better tape of maybe a screw in holder if I can get to it.

It is the power cord for the light and outlet in the slide. There is supposed to be a bungee type cord that holds tension when it is slid out. I used a small piece of eternabond tape near the hole it goes into to hold it up.

The dealer is right about it being part of the slide, but if they implied that is normal, they are very wrong! As mentioned already, that is the harness for 12V and 120V wiring to your lights and outlet over the drawer. Also, as mentioned, it should be held by a stretch cord, which is likely broken or unattached. The cord should hold the harness somewhat tightly as the slide goes out and back in. On my unit, the cord was so tight it pulled the harness out through the hole in the underside of the slide, pulling the wires out of the shield and fraying the insulation on the wires. I had to re-work the stretch cord and fasten it so the tension was sufficient but not extreme.
If left as you see it, you will have damage to the wires from the slide going out and in.
Tell the dealer it needs to be fixed, and if you buy the unit, check it carefully by looking under it while retracted and also extended.
