I have recently changed the pathetic small break away cable on my trailer to something more substantial.
The monkey (No I am not being harsh, he REALLY is!) at the local chandlers tells me its suicidal to have a bigger cable on here as I'm towing a big boat with a little car (6m Ribtc with an A3).
The monkey says the idea of the cable is to pull the break on and snap, leaving the car and trailer to separate and go their seperate ways.
Now my impression was that the cable is to STOP the rig separating and saying ta ta to each other whilst applying the brake.
My employer uses pin and eye hitches, brake away cables and webbing straps halfway down the drawbar to prevent seperation and some of these are BIG trailers on Land Rovers/Mitsubishi's/Toyota's. Overkill if you ask me
If anybody has got any ideas on which is the correct understanding of the system please let me know cause I'm a bit confused!!!
Cheers in advanced people!!!
