Breakaway switch test

I guess to check the switch we just pull on the cable. My question is: how hard should it be to engage the switch?

It's a key. Pull it hard enough to pull the key out of the socket. The plastic key essentially keeps two electrical contacts spread apart and prevents them from contacting.

Thanks! So the "key" gets pulled out. I'll try pulling harder. Looking online the switch is only about $10 so even if I broke it I'd not be out a lot of money.

If it's the original switch, I think there's a good chance it could break. You can buy the whole new switch, which may not be a bad idea, or you could just get a new cable/key. They sell that too, so if the cable got caught in something/damaged on a newer trailer, it's cheaper and makes more sense just to replace the cable.

That was my thought, to install a new switch. Not expensive, shouldn't take long and we'll feel safer. It does look like there would be a simple test for the switch to eliminate the chance of riding off with a defective switch.
