What is this

I have purchased a used 2004 alpine coach, and while getting acquainted with each i notice a small long coated cable with what looks to be a key attached. i have attached a picture if any one can help me identify what this is.

It looks like a break away plug from the previous owner's towing set up.

Agree! I have one just like it that was installed with my Air Force One braking system.

yup its the breakaway key.....you would attach the loop to some part of your truck and if, in my case my 5er, every disengaged it would pull the key out and the brakes would auto lock.....On my rig the female end is located below the frame of the hitch.....Defintely not needed for a rig like yours....
