Dave & Colleen, your assessment is spot on. It might have been misleading to say the cables were "against" the air line. In fact, the cables had been looped under the E-brake air line and then pulled back up and secured tightly to the bottom side of the coach floor. The air line was pulled way out of alignment with the connection on the E-brake cylinder. While chaffing is an issue, I was concerned about the stability of the air line connection and the possibility of a E-brake deployment at hi-way speed. Ironically, air pressure releases the E-brake-- loss of air pressure deploys the E-brake.
