    Unhappy Slide out straps broken

    Reflection owners. Check your straps that hold your gas line and power cables on the fridge slide out. The front plastic strap on the gas line completely broke and the strap at the rear is 1/4 torn. I made temporary repairs with zip ties. Sent pics to dealer they are contacting GD. These straps did not even make it 3 months. They are made by lippert and are a poor quality IMO. I hope that GD has a better replacement strap. This was on our 2015 303. After I saw mine break. We checked our friends 2014 337. And their gas line strap was also broken, same thing 3 months old. I will let you guys know what GD repair is going to be.

    I sure hope GD comes up with a better solution for these straps. Mine broke at three months. I replaced it and it broke again. This is a very poor design and inferior materials. If they won't come up with a better design, I will.

    Mine tore after about four months. I had it repaired when doing some other warranty work. The dealer I was referred to in Missoula Montana by Grand Design was Bretz RV. I believed it was just reattached, not replaced. Waiting on reimbursement now.

    Update. The dealer is sending me replacement straps. I asked if they are the same as original, they said they were. I am disappointed I think that they will just break again and then I will be out of warranty. Anyone from GD reading this? If so is there a better strap than this? This seams to be a problem with a lot of your coaches.

    Hi Paul & Debbie (@Pjs2500hd),

    We are in contact with Lippert and investigating these issues with the Flex-Guard strap. We suspect we may have received a shipment with brittle plastic.

    They must be a defective batch. Those Flex-guard straps were working fine after 6 years on my old trailer I traded in for my Solitude. From what I've seen, they are used on most RV's.
