X2 Center Tab Power Cable Cut

I have a 2015 X2 and we pulled it out of the water yesterday for the winter and I noticed the power cable running from the boat to the center tab is cut/shredded. The power cable is cut off flush where it exits the boat and where it reenters the actuator pump. The tab is 100% up, so were not sure when the cable was cut. You would think it would break in the down position and stay down since the power was cut off. Any ideas what causes this to happen? Name:  pic.jpg

Only thing that comes to mind is something relatively strong hit it and tore it- did someone try to stand on the trim tab or did someone pull on it? That seems like a very unusual place to have a cable failure- middle of the boat under the swim deck- that's probably the best protected place there is!
Is it possible you had the tab down and reversed the boat? Maybe the backing force hyper-extended the actuator and tore the cable?

My first impression looking at the cable says Muskrat! I had one eat my speedo tubes one year.
