ACE 29.2 - replacing the gray tank cable

Has anyone done this, I need to do it, the cable sheath has separated from the T handle end crimp, I gotta replace it. Access looks like a bear, I don't know how I am going to do it. Has anyone done this on a 29.2? Normally these aren't that hard, but the access on this one is almost non-existant. Any guidance is appreciated!!!

Like anything else, you just figure it out. I got it replaced. The hardest thing was the access and twisting I would need to do in that compartment. I rigged up a podium outside the compartment at the same height so it made it much easier to twist around if my entire body was flat like laying on a creeper. I used the sheath from the old cable to pull the new one to the right side of the coach, had it all precut to length. Still took a little work, but I it's done right. I really wanted to bring it to a dealer and let them deal with it, but then I started to think about the techs working on my coach, possibility of getting a scratch, or some other issue, I just did it myself. A little $19.00 cable caused a lot of work. "Made in America" doesn't mean a lot anymore. They spent more time stamping Made in America on the box and cable than they spent on the quality control. Just looking at it you could see the crimp was ****, but they let it go out the door. Then Thor installed it without even thinking about it, stupid is as stupid does.
