Default Cutting Edge - cable chafe

Found another serious chafe point today on our 83 FC. This condition may also apply to others with central AC units.

While running a new air line for the Aux AC to the AD -2 air drier I came across this. Beneath the coach at the top back of the support housing for the forward ac unit, is a jagged sharp edge about 3 inches across. Right above this is a a large bundle of cables and chassis heater hoses. Well, I am thankful to have found this and thankful for the rugged asphalt impregnated fiber loom!

This bundle was sagging down and chafing along that jagged edge. You will notice in the photo that two of the looms are partly cut through. I tied it all up with some heavy zip ties and added another chafing pad. I will be inspecting the other two units soon.
