Video Transcript for Fastway Zip Trailer Breakaway Switch with Coiled Cable Review

Speaker 1: Today you're going to get a good look at and we're going to show you how to install the Fastway Zip Trailer Break Away Switch with coiled cable. It's available in four foot long with part number FA80-00-2040 and in six foot with part number FA80-00-2060. This is a great replacement for your trailer's old break away device. In case of a catastrophic event where you may become uncoupled or disconnected from your trailer, this switch will activate, locking your brakes, bringing your trailer to a slowing halt.The cable is coiled to prevent it from dragging on the ground. It doesn't look thick, but it's actually a high strength woven steel, so it's going to be durable and last for a long time. The vehicle end features a carabiner so it's easy to connect to your safety chain loops.Here at my camper, you can see my old break away switch is junk.

It's just hanging there. We're going to replace it with the Fastway Break away switch. Yours may remove differently, I'm just going to unbolt mine and cut my wires. Now, on this trailer, the wires are run through some loom. I'm just going to reveal them and then cut them where I want to splice into them.

Now I can remove and discard my old break away switch.Now you can set your break away switch in place where you want it. You want to be sure you have enough room to connect your break away to your vehicle. To get it mounted, you'll have to provide your own hardware. We recommend using a self-tapping screw.I've gone ahead and routed my wires through the wire loom material, back to where I cut my wires. If you don't have any loom material and would like some to protect your wires, you can pick some up here at etrailer.com with part number 459075-1, and that's sold by the foot.

Here where my wires meet, as you can see, I've got some excess. I'm going to trim some off. I'm going to be using some butt connectors, so we'll want to be sure and allow for that.Now I'm going to strip back all four of my wires with some wire strippers and I'm going to go back about a quarter of an inch. We'll be using heat-shrink butt connectors. These are not included, but you can pick some up at etrailer.com with part number DW05744-5.

Now since it's a switch, it doesn't matter positive or negative, we can connect either wire to either wire. So we'll first take our heat-shrink butt connector and make sure that that's all the way inside, then I'm going to crimp it. And I'll take one of my other wires and do the same thing. Then I can repeat the same process with my other wire.The reason we're using heat-shrink butt connectors is because we're on the outside of the trailer and we don't want any moisture to get inside. Let's go ahead and shrink those down. We're using a heat gun to do so. Now we'll tuck our wires back into our loom. If you want, you can use some electrical tape.To test it out, you can support one of your axles with a jack stand, then you can get your wheel spinning real good and then have somebody pull out the switch. Go ahead. If it locks up, it works correctly. And now you've had a good look at, and you know how to install, the Fastway Zip Trailer Break Away Switch with coiled cable.

Etrailer had the best price on this switch and cable. I like the coiled cable. It is neat and stays up out of the way. I had my old steel cable catch the hitch and pull the pin on the breakaway switch. This cable should eliminate that problem. My only complaint is I paid extra for 3 day shipping. It took four. Wouldn't have been a big deal normally but I was waiting on it to leave on a trip. 244415

ANOTHER EASY INSTALL. GOOD QUALITY CABLE THAT DOESNT RUST OUT AS OF YET (1 YEAR LATER) I CANT TELL YOU HOW GOOD IT WORKS BECAUSE I DONT WANT TO FIND OUT HONESTLY. 516821

I have received the new breakaway switch and it looks great. Unfortunately I will have to wait to install it as the trailer currently has approx 4 foot of snow on it and it's "out back" meaning I have a couple hundred feet of 4-5' high snow to go through to get to it. In addition we are in the midst of a deep freeze. Current temp is minus 7 degrees! I will install the unit most likely in late March or even April 465291

This is the way to go, much better than cable. No dragging wires to get cut, smooth swiitch engagement/diconnect. 451037

Get rid of that old cable type and get something like this that recoils when you disconnect it. Don't know if the clip will survive a winter of salt. Should be stainless steel to survive 444269

Everything arrived in perfect condition. The Barman 92 series replacement lens was a perfect fit for the light on our 1999 Coleman camper. The Fastway Breakaway switch with it's coiled cable is a welcome relief from the switch on the camper now. I haven't installed the hand held shower unit, but it looks as though it will fit perfectly. My only very small issue was in boxing the items. Packing the box a little tighter maybe would have prevented the slight damage to the box. I would definitely recommend and use etrailer.com in the future. 409170

The sping coiled wire was the perfect addition as it keeps it out of the way when the trailer is stored and can reach the different connection points on my truck and motorhome. Thanks etrailer! 317234

This was purchased as a replacement for the original which had seized up. The coiled cable is excellent. The original required taped up coils in the cable to prevent dragging. 302062

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


  • Does a Trailer Need Just a Breakaway Switch or an Entire Breakaway System
  • If all you need is just a replacement breakaway switch then you could just use the part # FA80-00-2060 as it will basically fit any trailer breakaway system on the market. If you are instead looking to install a breakaway system on a trailer that does not have one currently you will need to install something like the # 20099. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Compatability with Brake Buddy Classic Braking System
  • A breakaway switch is a very basic device so you can use switch # FA80-00-2060 with your braking system. But I recently learned that the BrakeBuddy switches use banana clips to connect to the BrakeBuddy itself. To use this switch you would need to obtain those clips from an electrical supply store.

  • Recommended Fastway Coiled Cable Breakaway Cable for 5th Wheel Trailer
  • You can use either a 4 foot cable like # FA80-01-2140 or a 6 foot cable like # FA80-01-2160. Either will work well on a 5th wheel trailer. Where you mount the breakaway on the trailer will dictate the best location for you to allow trailer turning and also a quick engagement if your trailer were to breakaway from your tow vehicle. If you don't have the entire assembly, you can use # FA80-00-2040 for the 4 foot cable or # FA80-00-2060 for the 6 foot cable. I've attached an article...

  • Will Fastway Zip Breakaway Switch Work with Esco Breakaway System
  • The Fastway Zip Trailer Breakaway Switch # FA80-00-2060 is a universal fit and is just the switch that connects to the battery and brake circuit. It will work with any standard breakaway system. As long as you Esco system works by just completing a circuit the Fastway Zip will work just fine.

  • Breakaway Switch and Whole System for Roadmaster BrakeMaster Braking System # RM-9100
  • If you have the rest of the breakaway system for the BrakeMaster # RM-9100 and just need to replace the switch then yes, you could use # FA80-00-2060 if you wanted to. If you do not have the rest of the breakaway system you will need # RM-8600 which comes with a switch and everything needed to add a breakaway system to the BrakeMaster # RM-9100.

  • Breakaway Switch Cable is Too Short on Car Mate Trailer with Hopkins Engager Breakaway System
  • The Hopkins Engager is a line of breakaway systems which are different than brake controllers. A brake controller mounts in the tow vehicle cab whereas a breakaway system mounts on the trailer. None of the electrical wiring from the Engager should be running to the tow vehicle. It should be getting a maintenance charge from the 12 volt circuit from the trailer connector which plugs into the mating connector on the vehicle. The only part of the system that connects to the tow vehicle...
