I have a small travel trailer with the usual RV 12v system. I havent found anything on the breakaway switch that looks like any sort of battery box, therefore, Im assuming that it works off the RV battery in the trailer? So my assumption is that the breakaway switch will not activate unless both the pin is pulled AND the electrical connector in my case 7 blade is separated. Would this be correct? I recently returned home from a trip with my camping trailer and noticed that the pin had pulled out. However, I did not notice anything unusual about the brakes- no excessive heat, trailer towed as smoothly as always, nothing out of the ordinary. Obviously Ill want to replace the pin part of it broke off in the process and possibly the switch itself depending on what I find when I take a closer look at it this evening. Is there anything else I should be worried about? I have NO idea how or when the pin came out, but there was absolutely nothing unusual in the way the trailer towed, no excessive heat, nothing. Thoughts?
