12 Volt Breakway wire broke in the hitch channel

Help, does anyone know the routing of the 12V hot wire for the breakaway switch. Mine broke in the hitch channel. Are there any mid-way points that i can tap into.. Thanks
Jim

12V wire

Bob, It looks like it broke around where the trailer starts. Not a chance! Its a good bad thing. It was grounding out and blowing a fuse everytime i moved it. I was in the process of installing a power jack. One strand of wire was all that was holding.

Take a look at Breakaway switch not working thread from last week. It gives some clues.

Don't know your model, but there is probably a panel underneath the front of your coach held on with screws. In there will be the breakout of the wires from the pigtail and the switch. Find the breakaway wire to the brakes there where it connects to the main brake wire. On mine it is yellow. You can then run a new wire from there to the switch and twist on a new nut. Make sure the caulk your panel when you put it back on to seal it.
