Video Transcript for Review of Bright Way Trailer Breakaway Kit - 3802348

Today we're going to take a look at the replacement breakaway switch for the Bright Way trailer breakaway kit. Now this breakaway switch will signal your Bright Way breakaway kit to bring your trailer safely to stop by activating its electric brakes should it become disconnected while being towed. This will replace the switch portion that came with your Bright Way trailer breakaway kit and you do need to remember a breakaway system is required by law in most states for trailers that are equipped with electric brakes, and have a gross towing weight capacity of at least 3000 pounds. And the thing about them is, besides being required, it will also offer you the peace of mind that in an emergency situation where the trailer might come detached from your tow vehicle, this part will help stop that trailer and prevent an even more dangerous situation. The breakaway switch will install on your trailer's frame.You can see the bracket here with the hole in it. So drilling is usually required.

You just put a screw in there to hold it into place. And basically how the switch works is, this is the wiring. There's two wires is wired to your trailer brake system, and then this braided steel cable here with the loop on each end, this end you'll run to your tow vehicle and hook it to your tow vehicle. So what happens in a situation where the trailer might come detached from the tow vehicle, it'll pull this line, which will remove that pin from the switch and that'll cause it to activate your trailer brakes and keep the trailer from a runaway situation.Now the wiring installation is usually if you have a Bright Way breakaway kit, usually the lid on the battery box will have the wiring installation show you where the wires go, but basically on the breakaway switch you'll have two wires to connect, a blue and a black. Basically the blue wire will connect to the blue wire that's on your battery box and the black wire will connect to the trailer brake wire from your trailer connector to the brakes.

And on these cables are the wiring length. The wiring length is about 48" long, and the cable length is about 42" long.But that should do it for the review on the replacement breakaway switch for the Bright Way trailer breakaway kit.
