What had happen is, I broke it, thinking that it was just a connection, then found out that it is a fuse. Will replace it in the future.

If you kill the ground/ negative then you have no break away brake and can't charge battery while hooked up to TV unless you turn off kill switch. I wanted to kill power to trailer but still be able to charge battery and use tongue jack.

Help me clarify here please, sorry for the dumb question.

Do you guys kill the Positive (red) side or Negative side (Black)? Why choose one over the other since it would accomplish the same thing?

When disconnecting a battery it is recommended to start with disconnecting ground first.
Be sure all grounds are connected no bypass from other grounds i.e. electric jack.
I installed my kill switch on the cover of the battery box in one of the cable outlets.

If you kill negative straight from battery, you kill everything that is powered by battery. If you kill positive, like I did, you have option to kill all positive or just positive to inside of camper. On my trailer there are 3 positive wires from battery. One is for tongue jack, another for breakaway brakes and 3rd for powering everything 12v inside the camper. Something inside my trailer was draining my battery so I install the kill switch but I can still operate my jack.

The danger if you leave one ground or one plus on the battery..........see what happen if you use the switch from the power jack. If there is a (heavy) 12 Volt load on it will seek its way to the other side. So all the neg. or pos. has to be disconnected.

On my trailer, I have one negative and 3 positive wires from battery. Negative goes to frame of trailer and one positive go to tongue jack and one go to break away switch and one big one goes to kill switch then into trailer.
