Towing Electric Cord

Somehow while backing up my cord from the truck to the travel trailer got caught between the hitch and the trailer and was sliced through. Does any current come from the batteries to the bare wires that I should be worried about or does it just go from the truck to the trailer parts? Is this hard to replace or should I get a mechanic? Thanks for any assistance

Unplug the end that is in your TV, unless you popped a fuse on the TV it will have 12v to the bare wire depending on the wires function.

Depending on your skill level they can be very simple to hire someone to do it.

If you are stuck someplace a few butt connectors and a crimp tool and a roll of electrical tape can get you home.

Get the right size based on wire gage.

You will have 12v from the battery so you need to make sure nothing is shorting.
