Need quick help

My cousin is hauling his TT home now from storage. All 4 brakes are locked. Turns out his break away plug and cable are missing. Is there anyway to bypass this singe can get it home to fix it? He's stuck on the road now. Thanks

I believe cut the two wires that go to break away and splice them together .
if not just cutting them at breakaway will solve it .
I cant remember if the breakaway id n.o or n.c .

Ok thanks for the quick reply. Apparently someone else needed the cable and pin where he stored it.

Yep that worked. He cut 1 wire and they released. He got home safe. Thanks again for the quick help! Now he just has to get a replacement cable and plug.
