Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Trailer Breakaway Kit - Replacement Switch and Cable - K71-691

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, I'm gonna take a look at this replacement 48-inch long breakaway switch with the cable and the pin for your Dexter Trailer Breakaway Kit. Now, this part here replaces the switch that came with your Dexter Trailer Breakaway Kit. That breakaway kit we do sell separately. It's part number 34-285. And you can see the switch is in a nylon case.

And the pin that goes into it is also nylon construction. So that does ensure durability. The lanyard provides a durable tension point between the switch and the tow vehicle. And if you look on the switch, has this weldable high temperature metal mounting tab for simple installation. The cable and the pull pin are included.

These parts are made in the USA. The switch itself is about one and a half inches wide, about three inches long, and about seven-eighths of an inch thick. The cable length is about 48 inches, and the wire that comes out of the switch is about 46 inches long. Does come with a couple screws to adjust the tension on the cable. But that should do it for the review on the replacement 48-inch long breakaway switch with the cable and the pin for your Dexter Trailer Breakaway Kit.

  • Wire Gauge of Dexter Breakaway Kit # K71-691
    The wires of the breakaway switch part # K71-691 are 14 gauge. The difference between it and the Dexter breakaway kit part # N65113 is that Bargman makes the N65113 and Esco makes the # K71-691. the Esco one is only one made in USA. They will function exact same though.

  • Cable For Breakaway Switch
    I think what you are looking at is the breakaway wire and that should be independent, not weaved through the safety chain. If you need a replacement, please identify what manufacturer you have that I may provide you the best recommendation. If you have a Hopkins, you will need the Replacement Cable and Pin for Hopkins Breakaway Kits, # HM20012. Another commonly used is the Dexter Trailer Breakaway, # K71-691. If you have something other than one of these two manufacturers, please let...

  • Recommended Replacement Breakaway Key for a Dexter Breakaway System
    Hey Joel, to answer your first question I'm not entirely sure what you can do temporarily considering that the key that fits into the Dexter Trailer Breakaway Kit # 34-285 uses a special shape that wouldn't be easily replaceable. I'd just recommend waiting until you get the Replacement Breakaway Switch with Cable and Pin for Dexter Trailer Breakaway Kit # K71-691 before towing your trailer again. Also, since the delivery times can change I'd recommend just checking what on the product...

  • Replacement Breakaway Cable for Trailer with Dexter Brakes
    I do have options for you but just because the trailer has Dexter brakes does not mean it will also have a Dexter breakaway kit. If you want to replace just cable and pin then I will need to know the brand and model of your breakaway kit which can be found on the top of the switch. That said, breakaway kits are universal so it would be easiest to just replace both the switch and cable/pin with the Replacement Breakaway Switch with Cable and Pin part # K71-691. There are only two wires that...

  • How are Trailer Breakaway Switches Tested
    Trailer breakaway switches are designed to be somewhat challenging to remove. If you are pulling straight out though it will come without damaging anything. The switches are universal though so if you have the part # K71-691 you could replace it with something different like the # C52010 and it would work just fine. It's the plungers of the kits that are not interchangeable. I also attached a help article on testing breakaway kits as well.
