Re: Reset Breakaway switch
I've read the whole thread and I still don't understand how one tests the breakaway switch.
I was hoping to just depend on faith that it will work if it is ever required.
But, I gather, with the power from the tow vehicle to the trailer disconnected, I would then pull the pin and then what? How do I know if it's working or not? Do I have to try to tow the trailer and see if the wheels are locked?
And, if the trailer does come off the hitch and the breakaway switch puts the brakes on, what good will that do? A trailer with nobody steering it, with the wheels locked, careering towards the cliff. Maybe somebody can explain the testing procedure and the overall concept.
Cause, I don't get it.
