Video Transcript for Bargman Trailer Breakaway Kit 54-85-007 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Bargman replacement breakaway switch with cable and pin. The breakaway switch is going to wire into your trailer's break system to provide peace of mind that if your trailer and tow vehicle disconnect, your trailer will come to an eventual stop, so if your trailer becomes uncoupled, the cord that's attached to your tow vehicle will pull the pin from the switch, which would then activate your trailer's brakes. The case right here is a durable reinforced nylon. Very strong and durable, it's corrosion resistant, it's going to feature a rust-proof nylon pin assembly, and the switch is mounted onto a metal tab for installation, you can weld that on or it does a mount hole right there, so you can screw that into place on your trailer frame. Hardware is not included. The diameter of that small little mounting hole is going to be a quarter of an inch. Now the cord, again this is going to attach to the tow vehicle, and the other end is connected pin inside the switch.

This is going to measure 48 inches long, or 4 feet long, that's going to be made from a steel construction, like a braided steel or woven steel, and it's going to have a protective coating on it to keep it from fraying, and to keep it from scratching other surfaces. The wires on this side, it's a two wire design, both wires are black so it doesn't matter which one goes to which function. One of them is going to need to be ran to a power source, the other one's going to get tied into the trailer's breaking system. The wires are also going to measure 4 feet long. A few measurements to go over with you real quick, I'm going to give you the measurement of the overall length: that's going to give us a measurement of about 4 and 3/8ths of an inch. Thickness or height is around pretty close to 1 inch.

Width, that's going to be an inch and a half, and just measuring the length of the box or the switch: it's going to be around 3 inches long. That's going to do it for today's look at the Bargman replacement breakaway switch, with the included cable and pin.

I bought this fifth wheel breakaway switch as a spare. I've been stuck before while running around trying to find one and then paying an exorbitant price. Better to have on hand, and it paid off when the one installed failed while backing into a space on a weekend while away from home. This one is working like a charm. 362429

This product was very good. I am thinking of buying a trailer to tow with a 2015 Ford Expedition. Is there trailer brake wiring already in that model? If so do you carry a controller that pulls in to it? 406937

Ask the Experts about this Bargman Accessories and Parts
Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Is the Bargman Breakaway Cable # 54-85-002 Compatible With a Conntek Breakaway Switch
  • Since the Replacement 48" Cable for Breakaway Switch # 54-85-002 is specifically made for the Bargman Breakaway Switch # 54-85-007, there is no way of knowing if it is a confirmed fit for another brand of switch without physically testing it. I recommend going ahead and purchasing the Replacement Breakaway Switch with Cable and Pin - 48" Long # 54-85-007 and replacing your current switch so that you know that you have a part that is a confirmed fit.

  • Replacement Bargman Breakaway System Switch Because Pin has Gotten Stuck
  • All breakaway kits function the same. It's basically just a pin that is released to then complete a circuit which engages the trailer's brakes. Having a pin be stuck after not moving for 10 years isn't too surprising so I wouldn't be alarmed by it. I recommend testing your system more often. As a tip it is best to unplug your trailer from the 7-way when testing. Some brake controllers can be damged. If you need a new switch you can use # 54-85-007. Or if you only need the pin then...

  • Replacement Pin for ESCO Breakaway Switch
  • We have found that the pin on the Replacement 48" Cable for Breakaway Switch # 54-85-002 does fit many models of ESCO breakaway systems. It is designed to fit the Bargman Breakaway Switch # # 54-85-007 and not an ESCO system but based on your photo and the pin on the cable I would be surprised if it did not fit.

  • How to Wire a Breakaway Switch to the Trailer Battery
  • In order to install a two wire breakaway switch like the Replacement Breakaway Switch with Cable and Pin part # 54-85-007 to an existing trailer battery you will want to attach one of the wires to the brake output signal (usually blue) on the trailer and the other wire to the trailer battery. The wires are non-polarized so it doesn't matter which wire is attached to battery/brake output signal. However, most states require that the breakaway switch be wired to a separate independent...

  • Replacement Breakaway Pin and Switch for Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • It sounds like the pin out has now drained the breakaway battery and that is why your trailer is rolling free. I recommend the Replacement Breakaway Switch with Cable and Pin - 48" Long # 54-85-007 to replace your pin and receiver and then charge your battery. Make sure to pull the pin to test function from time to time. A working pin and receiver should allow you to pull and reinsert the pin without issue so you can test it regularly.

  • Replacement Breakaway Switch for a Forest Ridge Shamrock

It will work well for you.
