Routing hitch wiring

I feel like an idiot, but I have twice now had my wiring from the TV to the TT get bound up in the hitch movement and damaged. Any experienced folks have suggestions on how to prevent that?

Put the wiring in automotive tubing or in actual plastic tubing, use zip ties to keep it together. Avoid excessive slack, just enough to go around corners.

What do you have for a camper, and hitch?

I rerouter my wireharness, it is secured to the frame under the propane tanks and battery box, until I get to the tongue jack. Then the harness lays off to the outside of frame and out of the way. The harness is hooked up last.

Maybe a pic with you hooked up would be best. Then we could offer some suggestions...

Pick up some flexible wire loom tubing, slide the wires inside and run some electrical tape over it to keep the wire in. Here is a Amazon link but you can buy at any local auto parts store.

Can try using a coupler safety pin with a large bend or loop on that clips over the pin to keep the pin from falling out, and has room for the 7 pin wire and brake breakaway cable as well.
