I have had 1 besco switches on my race trailers threw the years. I have never had any needing replaced, They are plastic. That being said, my current Airstream has a different plastic switch that looks chincy. Not a Besco switch.

While airstreams breakaway systems use the 12 volt on board system, (deep cycle Battery) my race trailers simply have a motorcycle batteries in the front tongue area to achieve the same thing.

In your case, it is probably better to have something hooked up.

I really appreciate all the responses everyone! I think I will hang on to the breakaway switch I ordered and use it as a disposable one (only $35) if need be. That is, just until I can get whatever trailer I find home, and then install one of those metal switches.
