breakaway switch cable snapped
My breakaway switch cable just snapped. No warning.
I always have it to OVER the safety chains, so it won't drag on the road and cause sparks or just get worn down. I do NOT wrap it around the safety chains, since I don't want it to snag and accidentally set off the breakaway switch on the interstate. It is long enough to allow slack for turning, etc... but no too long.
Any ideas on why this might have broken? It just snapped. I don't remember it being frayed, but why would it just snap? There's never any pressure on it. It always had plenty of slack. The only friction would be against the top of the safety chains.
Thank god the trailer didn't come loose the same day this cable snapped.
For a new one, just go to any RV store? Camping World?
