Assuming your BrakeBuddy has the jack or connector for the break-away feature then, yes, the cable is a simple thing to arrange.
But first you need a switch which is typically mounted near the front bumper of the toad. The switch is designed for this use in that it has a plunger that is connected via a mechanical, non-electrical cable to the coach. So if the toad comes loose from the coach the plunger is pulled out of the switch which allows contacts to close. There is a two-conductor cable that goes from the above mentioned switch to the BrakeBuddy unit itself. Go to BrakeBuddy's web site for manuals and a product support contact.
I had a BrakeBuddy Vantage and liked it. The main disadvantage was what to do with it when not in use.
