Short in Power Supply Cable

Hi All,

Yesterday my Farmbot stopped moving as it went towards home and lost power. I sourced the issue to the GRD from the power supply was not present. I finally found that the power supply cable, while bending in the X cable carrier, shorted the GRD line. Basically my Farmbot would have power when at home but lose power about 1000 mm into the X direction.

It seems like this cable is not designed to be flexing over and over again. Is there an upgraded cable? Anyone else have this happen? My Farmbot Genesis is the latest version and was received around late May of this year.
