Google Bal Accuslide cable repair kit -- Amazon has them for under $30.00 -- The cables I`ve seen that broke or damaged has been the upper, forward cable -- When traveling, I`ve seen a few coaches with the cable slide with missing cables, & each one was the upper, forward cable -- I`ve informed each one of the problem, & the response was usually " my slide works OK' -- Monaco is not the only one that uses this slide -- To lessen the chance of a cut cable, extend the slide, & measure the distant from the side of the slide to the cable, next to the coach body & then the slide outside wal -- They should be the same -- If not, even a 1/8th of an inch, it should be corrected -- It will probably be less at the forward end -- Slack off on that cable, & unscrew the cable keeper on the side of the slide & use washers to shim the keeper out --
The reason for this is because the hole where the cable enters the body of the coach is very small & metal, when the slide is in, the cable will rub on this metal , cutting the cable-- All the cables I`ve seen was cut next to the slide outside wall -- Mark Novaks was an 1/8 inch & mide was 1/4 inch out -- Bill Willard

Bill ; Is it just one continuous cable for the slide, or one on each end?
Thanks for the tip on checking the cable measurement! I'll put that on the 'to do' list, before I head south. Had to read it three times before it sunk in where you are measuring.

I didn`t know how to explain it very good - Glad you figured it out -- There are 8 separate cables -- 4 pulling it out, & 4 pulling it in -- There is a panel, inside, over the slide out facia -- It goes the full width of the slide -- Some just snap on, some are nailed on, but that is where the motor & cable connections are - You would have no reason to, but if you removed the slide side facias, you will see where the other 4 cables attach -- It`s a complicated system, but works good if every thing is in line -- If it`s not, a bear to work on -- It`s a one length fits all when you purchase a new cable -- Just cut it to size -- Bill Willard

Yeah, the original owner must have purchased a spare. I haven't taken it out of the bag, but it didn't look like it was long enough to cover the whole slide.
