Thanks Vince. The pressurized fuel bottles are supposed to be "crushproof."

If you have elec brakes you have to have the disconnect turn on so they will work plus you have to have the battery on to use gas elec ignitor

Power for electric brakes comes from the tow vehicle. (Not sure about emergency-disconnect power. I would think that has to bypass the cutoff as well.)

I was told when I went to get my trailer inspected before I had to have a battery with the old trailer without the disconnect .When I bought my new one I was told I had to have my disconnect put out when traveling.

I'm not familiar with your terminology "disconnect put out".

I see that I also used a poor choice of words with "emergency-disconnect". I meant emergency break-away switch (which turns on the brakes if the trailer breaks away from the tow-vehicle).
