Tuscany Rear View Camera

Good morning all,
The rear view camera on my Tuscany 4055 began acting up, vertical lines, distorted picture etc. Upon switching to the sideview cameras and seeing no problem, crystal clear view, I purchased a replacement camera for the rear of the coach. Upon unbolting the existing camera and beginning to pull out the attached cable that is inside the rear cap and about 3 feet long, the cable became very difficult to pull about 6" from the opening in the cap. Fearing I might pull the cable apart at the connector, I stopped and let the cable feed back into the cap and reinstalled the existing camera. Any ideas on how to pull the power cable without damaging the connector.
Thanks!

in my 2008 4056 the cables comes in about halfway up the rear panel and has about 6 feet of droop. the camera has been replaced before
i would look up in the big area between the rear cap and the coach rear wall for an errant cable tie or a place its snagging on

Never thought to look up there, duh? There it was, zip tied to another wiring harness. Snipped the tie and had plenty of slack to access the connector. All good now. Thank you!
