Bedroom Accu Slide

Have a broken cable on the bedroom Accu Slide. Watched the video produced by the factory, but can't find the mechanism to install the cable. I don't see any removable panels on the top or bottom of the slide out. Obviously it has to be on the movable part of the slide right? Removing the bottom drawers is a dead end. Top rail on the slide is only about 3" wide and nothing behind it. I know it's in there somewhere. Anybody have a idea?

I`ve had to replace 2 cables --If it is completely into, with no end sticking out the side, it`s not an easy job, but if it`s frayed, & needs replacing, it`s maybe a 30 minute chore -- The motor & cable connections are in a cabinet above the slide out header -- The front panel is installed using door latches, about 8 -- A dinner knife is the best thing to use -- Slide the knife between the panel & cabinet to pop the panel off -- This panel is as long as your slide, & 6-8 inches wide -- I always carry a spare just in case I notice one frayed, I then will replace the cable before it breaks -- If you need more info, email me & I`ll go into more detail -- Bill Willard

I finally found it. In our coach it is located in a 3" wide opening above the slide out. The cable is only frayed so when it gets here next week it shouldn't be a major problem. The way it is mounted, if you had to change the motor it would require a major removal of the entire slide frame. Poor, poor design by Monaco. Thanks for the input Bill, if I run into a snag you can bet I will be contacting you.

The cable kit will have a furrel (sp) to crimp the cable when you get it in place -- Almost impossibe to crimp, so go to a home center & get small cable clamps -- Works just as well, & not near a PIA -- Good luck & be in a good mood when you start, because you won`t be when you finish -- Bill Willard

Boy do I know that feeling... BIG TIME... I was able to find some panels however... The instructions say that if the broken cable end is where you can get at it you use the remaining cable to pull the new cable in.

Frankly this is a major pain with that design. Cause when mine broke.. The broken cable end was in the wall and I had to figure out how to feed the cables through... I did it. but I do not recommend trying it if you can find a way not to. If you are in Upstate South Carolina we can get together and I can likely do it again but I'd be very hard pressed to tell you how.. The panels are half hidden beside the slide out.

Bill, that is a excellent idea about the cable clamps. I have very limited access and no crimping tool because we are in Florida and that is one tool I do not have with me. Thanks My cable is broken at the attach point on the slide, so hopefully all I have to do is pull it through. Can it be that easy!

The kit,, if the broken cable is hanging out you slip some heat shrink over the broken end, slip the end of the new cable into the heat shrink (After a few other steps) and heat.. Then you pull it through, and finish the job.

In my case the slide was retracted so the broken end was inside the wall..... I had to do some very fancy work to snake a fish line out so I could do more or less what I just described.

Changed the cable today. Very easy job, just follow the instructions from the Accu Slide video and it was exactly as described. Only problem was the VERY small access to the motor and cable area. Monaco could have designed that much better. If I ever have to manually retract the slide it will require the removal of all the fascia trim on the slide.www.norcoind.com/bal/products/oem/accuslide/index.shtml
