Not arguing with you, but questioning your insurance people.
My guess is that they meant to communicate to you that your liability (the portion of your insurance policy that takes care of the other persons injury or property damage) extends from your tow vehicle to the trailer you are pulling... meaning that, for example, if you take a turn to short and drag your trailer across the front of someone's vehicle, even though your insured vehicle didn't actually hit the other persons vehicle, your liability will still fix the other persons car and pay for their injuries because your trailer was hooked to your tow vehicle.
Now in this example, if you did not have
an endorsement to specifically cover your trailer or a separate policy for your trailer, damage that your trailer received in this accident would not be covered.
Again, I am not arguing with you, I just suspect that they did not explain it to you correctly or effectively.
