How to reroute a cable on a slide out
The question doesn't have a lot of detail -- model of RV, which slide out if more than one, what kind of cable?
Generally, if it is a power cable, disconnect from shore power and disconnect both the cabin battery(ies) and the engine battery(ies). Find the end of the cable (fuse panel, switch) and disconnect unless there is a junction or connector that is easier to access. Carefully unmount any cable ties or holds/clamps to free the cable. Reroute to your preferred location, clamp in place. Things to consider: is rerouting necessary? Will there be enough slack in the cable to operate when the slide out is extended, or doesn't k*1*n*k, pinch or droop below the chassis when slide out is retracted. Any sharp corners or wear points it will rub against? If replacing with a new cable, is the cable suitable for exterior environments if it is outside/underneath -- and if it is power, is it sufficient gauge for the power running through it?
You can probably see why it's hard to answer your question -- many variables and unknowns. Can't believe k*1*n*k is a naughty word on this forum.
