Default Emergency brake cable replacement

Hello. The emergency brake cable on my 1504T Hi Lo has frayed and broken. How do I go about replacing this? What type/gauge cable should I use? What clip should I use to attach it to my hitch?
Thanks, Jerry

Jerry, I think you could find similar cable at a home improvement store such as Home Depot or Lowes. Just look for some that's the same or larger diameter and I'd buy stainless steel if available. It should not hurt if the cable is thicker, but it would be weaker if thinner. As far as the clip goes, it's just a common spring clip that you can also find at home improvement stores or hardware stores. Really, any kind of clip you can find that works would be fine.

It might be a good time to make sure the e-brake (breakaway) works. I just replaced the whole breakaway switch on mine ('98 24TD) because the 'innards' had rusted to the point where a new cable wasn't gonna fix the whole problem. Only $17. Just a thought...

Good catch, mt! The breakaway switch is certainly exposed to the elements and if it's old, is probably due replacement.
