Overun brake cable



I have a Dethleffs camper DL470  it is on a BPW chassis  but is fitted with an ALKO 2004 hitch.

Which type of over run brake cable should I use as a replacement  for my caravan?  A blue  cable BPW  or a red  ALKO one ?

I get no help from the current one which is black. Normally I would not be concerned but a recent caravan show  said that you should use the correct type only.

Any help would be gratefully received.

If the chassis is BWP then the cable should be BWP although I have a suspicion that, apart from the colour, there probably is no difference between the cables

Thanks for that. I hoped that was the case but did not not want to break any rules.

      I’m off again on Thursday and hopefully getting more. That fish was my first from this water for a long time. I left the club about 15 years ago. There have been a lot of changes since then especially in the fish size apparently there are at least 20x20s and 4x30s. So I am hoping for something a lot bigger
