Feathertouch Boss focus cable

Hi all, since new I was worried about the quality of the FeatherTouch Boss 2 RJ11 to USB cable. Last weekend I started getting 12V shocks on my rig and this appears to be the culprit. I've contacted Starlight Instruments but they want $121 USD for a new one!

Does anyone else have a Feathertouch focuser with a Boss2 that they could take a photo please of the cable so I can try and repair it.

It's the cable from the Boss 2 RJ11 output to USB input to my hub.
Kind regards
Geoff

You could wire one up yourself for less thant $10 if you have a crimping tool, $121 is extortion
