Video Transcript for Blue Ox Replacement Breakaway Switch Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Blue Ox Second Vehicle breakaway Kit from Blue Ox Patriot Supplemental Braking Systems. That's gonna be part number BRK2505.So, here's what our breakaway kit looks like once we have it installed. This is gonna look just like the one that comes with your Blue Ox Portable Braking system, and this would be an ideal solution, that way we can use that portability and move into a second vehicle. Or, if your breakaway switch and cable is damaged, this is gonna be a good option to replace those as well.The nice thing about the Blue Ox Portable Braking systems is that they are portable. But, if you want to tow a second vehicle behind your motor home, we're gonna have to mount the breakaway switch on that one as well.So, here's what our second vehicle kit's gonna come with. It's gonna come with the breakaway switch itself, the lanyard, as well as the cable to get everything hooked up.

That way, when we move our Patriot or Patriot II into our second vehicle, all we gotta do is plug in the cable like we normally would.Just like the breakaway switch that comes with your portable braking system, we're gonna have one end that's gonna plug into the breakaway switch itself, and then we'll have about 10 feet of cable that we can route all the way to the inside, and then the other end's gonna plug directly into the braking system.Now, you're gonna need to find a spot on the front of your vehicle to mount the breakaway switch. Your baseplate may have a provision already in there to mount the switch up. Ours didn't, so we ended up using this bracket, and cutting it in half because of the limited space.We're gonna be mounting our switch to this bracket. Now, keep in mind that our breakaway kit is not coming with hardware, so you may want to pick up some 1/4" bolts, washers, and lock nuts.We'll just pass our bolt through the bracket, and then slide our switch around the bolt. We're gonna put a washer on, and then finally secure it with a lock nut.Then you want to make sure you secure the hardware down.

Then the switch is not gonna move around too much on ya.Coming out of the back of our switch we'll have two wires coming to this plug. We can grab the cable, we can plug it in. You want to make sure you get it plugged in all the way. I always like to wrap the connection with electrical tape. That's not only gonna help keep it stay together, but it's also gonna keep any kind of moisture and debris from getting inside.With our connection made here, we're gonna take the other end of our cable, and we're gonna route it up into the engine bay, so we can go through the firewall, into the inside of the car.Now, once you have your cable routed to the engine bay, you're gonna have to fine and entry point to reach the inside of the car.

Typically you'll have a grommet along the firewall somewhere, that we can poke a hole through, and feed our cable in. In our application, we do have a grommet, right against the firewall, that'll lead us right in, usually you'll find that they have some wires going through it as well. So, we're gonna poke a hole through that rubber grommet. Just want to be extra careful, and not damage any of the wires that are already in there.If you did poke a hole through the grommet, it's always a good idea to come back with some silicone and seal it back up.Now we have our cable inside. All we have to do is put our portable braking system in, and plug it up.

Whenever we're not using it, we can tuck it underneath the floor mat, or under the carpet, so it's out of the way.That'll finish up your look at the Blue Ox Second Vehicle breakaway kit for Blue Ox Patriot Supplemental Braking Systems. Part number BRK2505.

With most states requiring supplement barking systems for tow vehicles greater than 3,000 lbs, this breakaway switch provides an extra layer of safety when dingy towing. This is the second switch that we have used, the first is still installed in our Silverado and this one will go in our Grand Cherokee. We have thankfully not have to experience it effectiveness on the road but in preflight chucks it has worked flawlessly. 693351

  • Base Plate Kit Needed to Work With Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar for a 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited
    The easiest solution would be to install the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-521450-5 if your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited has the standard factory bumper. For this base plate kit to work with your Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar # BX7420 you simply need the Adapter Brackets # BX88185. These adapter brackets change the connection points on your tow bar so that they are compatible with the EZ5 base plate kit. Please note that a complete flat towing setup includes a base plate kit, tow...

  • Base Plate Kit and Tow Bar Wiring For 2013 Honda CR-V
    For a base plate kit confirmed as a fit for your 2013 Honda CR-V we have the Roadmaster kit part # RM-521567-4 which is a confirmed fit and will work well with your Roadmaster Falcon 2 # RM-520. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you...

  • Can Blue Ox Flat Towing Parts from 2013 Ford Edge Fit a 2018 Ford Edge SEL
    You will be able to use your Blue Ox braking system and tow bar but you will need new base plates. The 2013 and 2018 Ford Edge SEL use different base plate designs. Base plates # BX2657 work with SEL models that do not have Active Cruise Control or the 2.0 EcoBoost motor. And they will not fit models with the Driver Assist Package. If your 2018 does have Active Cruise Control but not the EcoBoost 2.0 liter motor then you can use base plates # BX2667. These base plates will be compatible...

  • Can Stay-In-Play DUO Braking System Be Removed and Installed on Different Vehicle?
    The RV service rep was not speaking the truth. The SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System # SM99251 can be removed and installed on another vehicle. You simply need to remove the parts from the vacuum lines and replace with couplers and hose. Other than that, you just remove the parts and reinstall them on your new vehicle. The rep was probably trying to lead you towards another very good and viable option like the Blue Ox Patriot Radio Frequency, Portable Braking System...

    Yes, with the older Blue Ox Braking System BRK2010 you can use Second Vehicle Breakaway Kit # BRK2505. These kits are not specific to any particular vehicle so this will work fine with your 2012 Chevrolet Equinox.

  • Blue Ox Patriot Breakaway Installation on 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Being Flat Towed
    On your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Blue Ox Patriot breakaway connector should be mounted to the front of your vehicle on the driver's side using bolt and lock nut. I've attached the instructions to assist. It is obvious the installer did not do this correctly and you were right to question the installation. The grill will most likely need to be trimmed to accommodate the fit as you can see in the attached video. There is a decent amount of force needed to activate that pin. ...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2010 Jeep Wrangler and 2017 Ford F-250
    First you'll need a base plate kit/adapter for both vehicles. For the 2010 Wrangler with an off-road bumper that has 1 inch D-rings you'd need the part # RM-035-1 and then for the 2017 F-250 you'd need the # RM-524452-5. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Blackhawk part # RM-422. This has non-binding arms which makes the setup very...
