Patch Cable

I am only guessing here, but since I have not been able to get a response from Tech Support, I am hoping someone can chime in here with a solution. About half way through a 3 hour gig or so, I lose the right footswitch connection so I can not forward to the next song in my list. I read somewhere here that another person corrected this with a change in the Patch Cable that came with the unit. Has anyone experienced this. Also, I have found a broken wire in the charger or 9 volt power supply. Where would one find a unit with stronger wire that will withstand the beating that traveling musicians cause?

Yes to the broken cable, it happens. I use PowerAlls for mine and they are fine.
