    It's your break away switch. You hook a cable to the rear of your TV. If your trailer comes unhitched, the cable pulls a pin and activates your brakes. You need a good trailer battery for it to work.

    Great thanks for the education xxxapache! Off to learn more about break away switches and their setups. I have to make some changes in the wiring while the skins are off the framing.

    It should be mentioned that the cable from the brake-away switch should be attached to your tv some place other then the hitch, drawbar or bumper ..
