Breakaway

Can someone please post a picture of the breakaway. I believe the previous owner cut the wires and we are trying to figure out how to hook it up.
Thank you

One side of the switch goes to the trailer battery positive terminal with a 20 amp fuse in that line. The other side is connected to the trailer brake wire.

If the pin is pulled out of the switch full battery voltage is applied to the trailer brakes.

Can you follow the wires? Do you have brakes on both axles or just one?

The wire nutted to the red wire is the jack power and should have a 30 amp circuit breaker between the wire not and the battery.

The 2 black wires are the breakaway wires. Test the one that is wire nutted for voltage on it. If it does not have voltage on it it most likely goes to the breaks. If it has voltage the other wire, currently loose, can be connected to it to supply power to the switch.
