Slideout Cable Support Spring

I have a 2018, 33 ft Keystone Springdale Travel Trailer with 2 slides. Model SG287RB. On both of my slides there is a long spring that supports the electrical cables when the slide opens and closes. These springs are badly rusted. On one slide the spring has broken and the cables hang down outside the slide when its in the closed position. The second spring is about to break. My questions are; what are these springs called, where can I order these and what sizes do I need. The slide with the broken spring comes out a lot further then the other slide so I assume I will need 2 different spring sizes. Attached is a picture of the electrical cables wrapped in plastic. This is suppose to be attached to the spring with zip ties. The spring is no longer there so the cables are just hanging down. Please advise

They would be like a screen door spring, and typically they have some stiff piece of plastic attached to them to work like a Flex Guard System. Or maybe you can just replace yours with a Flex Guard. They make Single, Double and Triples of theirs. You may try an ACE hardware to match up what you have also. If you get measurements you can contact a springs supplier and get your own. Otherwise contact the factory.

Here is the Lippert Flex Guard (single they make in different lengths):

Good luck!
