I'm surprised any chassis manufacturer supports a break away valve for the towed vehicle. Perhaps this valve is sole to protect the air system on the coach when the air line to the towed vehicle is broke or otherwise has a catstropic failure.
The break away system must be solely contained in the towed vehicle to actually work. Of course there may be a trigger mechanism attached to the RV, just is common with the tether cable that activates the towed vehicles break away braking system. In the case of the SMI AF1 system and I believe the same to be true of the M&G they contain a small air tank that is supposed to have an adequate supply of air to apply and hold the brakes on the towed vehicle.
