Emergency Break Cable


Recommended Posts

We bought our Oliver used and the previous owner has the Emergency Break Cable threaded through the safety chain. To me this would be useless as it would not apply the breaks in a break away. All of my other trailers I hook up the break away cable separate.

That configuration is definitely wrong.   The emergency breakaway cable should go directly from the breakaway switch on the trailer to the tow vehicle, usually attached to one of the slots or metal loops on the hitch receiver on the tow vehicle.  As yours is currently configured that would likely do absolutely nothing to activate the trailer brakes if the trailer came unhitched.
