I put an "L" bracket in front of it so it can not happen again. Your breakaway should be wired to the pos on the battery. Your 7 pin tow plug is also wired in before the switch. If your switch is off your converter charger can not charge your battery when on 110v. You TV will be charging no matter what position your switch is in. I strongly suggest that anyone with that old car light switch that they use for a cut off that you protect it from anything that can move and push it in. The breakaway has to wired hot all the time. If yours is not I would change it. The last argument on this subject people stated the reason they use a switch like that is in case of an emergency it's easier to push it in then pull it out. That statement is wrong it will take the same amount of time to do. The switch itself is a bad design and should work just the opposite in is on out is off. At least this is what I have found. But remember this is FR and depending on who was on line that day yours could be different. That is why you can not get a wiring diagram from FR. I tried and that is what I was told buy FR themselves at the factory level not dealer.
Agree, good info.
My switch is right at the top of the steps a few inches off the floor. It's so easy to accidentally bump it.
One thing I'm assuming is that when connect to the tow vehicle, the battery will charge regardless of the battery disconnect position. Has anyone verified this? I'm going to put my voltmeter on it and verify that next time I hookup. I've done this with AC power on and mine works the same as yours.
