Video Transcript for Fastway Trailer Breakaway Kit FA80-01-2160 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Break-Away Cable. The coiled design is going to keep your break-away cable from dragging on the ground. No more frayed ends and there's no need to loop the cable around the trailer tongue to keep it away from the groun. The coiled cable, once its all the way installed, is going to offer a better, cleaner look as well. This is a universal fit. It's going to work as a replacement cable for almost any pin style trailer break-away system. When you're ready to replace your old cable, just cut off your old cable at the switch pin and then thread the pin onto the zip cable's integrated split ring. On this end we're going to have the included carabiner.

That's going to make it easy to clip the cable to the tow vehicle. The cable itself is made from a high strength woven steel. It's a high strength cable and it's going to have a UV protective coating that's going to really increase or boost durability and it's scratch resistant, meaning that it's not going to scratch anything that it comes into contact with. The overall length of the unit when it's stretched out is going to be up to 6 feet long. That's going to do it for today's look at the Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Break-Away Cable.

Initial order was for a 4 foot long cable. Discovered that it was stretched way too tight. Ordered the 6 foot long cable, works just fine. Measure the distance before ordering. But it is more convenient that the original cable. 607791

I bought the longer break-away cable per the advise of others. Although my 14' trailer calls for the shorter cable, the longer one actually stays coiled together much more nicely & looks much neater while towing. If it's needed, my opinion is that it's not going to matter much whether the emergency trailer brakes come on 4 feet away or 6 or more feet away, if you ever do have the misfortune to stretch the coiled cable out. Glad I bought the longer one. 790361

After a year of use I have been very happy with my Fastway Coiled Breakway Cable. No deterioration of the red plastic covering has been noticed. I find that it is necessary to keep the pivot point in the Carabiner clip lubricated well to make it work smoothly. Other than that, no problems. 680256

Received the coiled breakaway cable quickly as expected from etrailer. As with many other folks the standard cable wound up frayed from dragging and the coiled wire seemed like a reasonable answer. It is easy enough to install. Now I am waiting for our next outing to give it a final grade. Expecting good things. 673267

Ask the Experts about this Fastway Accessories and Parts

  • Replacement Cable for Trailer Breakaway System
    Trailer breakaway cables are not specific to any given brand of system so you can refer to the linked page that shows many such replacement cables such as 4-foot # FA80-01-2140 and 6-foot # FA80-01-2160.
    view full answer...
  • How Long/Tight Should Breakaway Cable of Trailer be
    The best length for the cable of a breakaway system like the Fastway Cable # FA80-01-2160 that you referenced will be just a bit longer than the safety chains. The breakaway cable should be longer than the safety chains according to RVIA Recreational Vehicle Industry Association. This will activate the brakes in the event you lose the trailer connection and the safety chains fail which will bring the trailer to a stop.

  • Could Coiled Breakaway Cable by Fastway Fit Puma Travel Trailer
    Yes, you could use the Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Breakaway Cable # FA80-01-2140 that you referenced on your travel trailer. This is a universal design that can basically fit any breakaway kit as long as the length of the cable is adequate. The length of this is 4 feet. For 6 feet you'd instead want the part # FA80-01-2160.

  • Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Breakaway Cable Recommendation
    Yes, the Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Breakaway Cable # FA80-01-2160 that you referenced would work well as a replacement breakaway cable for your trailer. You would just need to remove your cable and clip this cable on and you would be ready to go. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also.

  • Should the Breakaway Cable be Shorter or Longer Than the Safety Chains
    I would recommend that the breakaway cable be cut shorter than the safety chains/cables that way if the trailer were to come uncoupled from the hitch ball it would come to a stop without slamming into the back of the tow vehicle. For a breakaway switch cable I really like the Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Breakaway Cable part # FA80-01-2140 for 4' long or part # FA80-01-2160 for 6' long as the coiled design keeps it free from dragging or fraying. I have also attached a list of our safety...

  • Coiled Cable and Pin for Tekonsha 2010 Breakaway Switch
    The correct part for your Tekonsha 2010 Breakaway Switch is the Replacement Cable and Nylon Pin Assembly for 2010 Breakaway Switch # 2010-A. Though this pin and the Fastway # FA80-01-2204 are similar, the Fastway pin has ridges on top, so it is not a direct replacement. I've added a link to a video review of the Tekonsha for you to take a look at.

  • 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...

  • Motorhome to Tow Vehicle Cable Extensions
    It sounds like you just need extensions for those items. For the safety cable you can use the 18" Roadmaster # RM-650648-18 safety cable extension. If your electrical cable is a 7-blade connector you can use the Bargman # 50-67-210 eight foot connector extension. Finally, for your breakaway line you can use the Fastway # FA80-01-2160 coiled cable. I have been using this breakaway coiled line for two years now and have been very satisfied.
