Breakaway Switch Wiring

I am replacing my break-away switch. My existing break-away switch has a red/black wire and a white wire connecting it. My replacement switch has three wires, a white, a black, and a red wire. Any idea how I should connect the new switch?

Morning Chillbilly: Breakaway switches are wired in a multitude of ways. The first question might be "why do you have a different switch than the one you are removing?" If your coach manufacture is giving you a replacement switch, and it's different that the original, then they owe you an explanation of how to wire it. Secondly, you might go to "Google" on the internet and google "RV breakaway switch wiring diagram" and that will give you a number of diagrams in wiring a "breakaway switch". Thirdly, you might contact www.etrailer.com and ask for help there, i.e. providing you with the proper replacement switch, or, giving you advice on how to wire the switch that you have. Seems that the first explanation should come from you coach manufacturer though. Good luck with your project.
