Short Stop Circuit Breaker

For future reference I have been locating the Short Stop Circuit Breakers on my Rockwood Fifth Wheel. So far, I have found three. Two of them are very close to my batteries. I believe one of those is for my landing gear and the other from my main slide. There is another one located under my hitch, about 2 feed behind the kingpin. I think that one may be for my "break-away" brakes.

Is anyone else aware of any others on a Rockwood Fifth Wheel?

I've never heard of a CB on the brake circuit. If I'm wrong, I'm sure I'll be corrected.

The break-a-way circuit must never have a fuse or breaker. It must be directly powered by the trailers battery at all times.

This is a picture of the circuit breaker under my hitch, just back from my kingpin. I assume it is for my break-away brakes since the only other thing up there is all the wires for the RV/TV connections. I didn't trace out the red wires.

Brake wire is usually blue.

I have the same on mine I am uncertain but my guess that is for the 12v power from the truck.to the battery in the coach to keep it charged when going down the road .. not for the brakes

A "short-stop circuit breaker"? I've never heard that term before.
