Brake breakaway cable

I have a 2012 Rockwood RV, the break away cable for emergency brakes pulled apart while unit was parked I just put it back in clip will it still work ok or does it need replaced?

If it just pulled out, and you can push it back in, it should be fine.

Thanks! It pulled apart when I was unhooking from truck I just clipped it back in seemed to work fine. I will watch when I tow again to ensure brakes are free.

One last question I believe this unit has a quick power disconnect instead of unhooking battery but I could not find the disconnect? Thought?

it would help if you posted the model number you have.
most of us include it in our signature.

i know of some of the Rockwood hybrids having a battery disconnect switch for 2012. but don't know about the regular TT line.

here's a link to a pic of biken201's Roo and his battery disconnect switch.
it's the silver knob under the fridge, to the right of the fuse panel.

My Windjammer 3002 battery disconnect is inside the propane compartment in front. It is a silver knob that you push in to disconnect. Can you follow the battery wires back to find the disconnect. Maybe in the front compartment?

I think there is no disconnect as I could not find it near fridge or propane. Thanks for the help. Need to see if brakes are working after pulling out the breakaway wire it snapped back in harness no problem but still worried it may have done something.

if the battery was hooked up and charged, something probably happened.
if no battery power, should be fine.
