Switch mounded up ok. I fabricated a shield to cover the switch so that it would not be jerked around and possibly fail due to wiggling around. 403366

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


  • What are the Functions of the 3 Wires on Hopkins LED Breakaway Switch, # HM20059
  • You are correct, the Hopkins LED Breakaway Switch, # HM20059, does have 3 wires. The white wire is the ground wire and should be attached to the trailer frame. The blue wire on the switch will connect to the electric brake wire coming from the trailer side connector. The black wire goes to the break away battery. This part is just a switch, if you need a new system, I recommend Engager Trailer BreakAway Kit with Charger and Tester, # 20099. I have included a link to the installation details...

  • Do You Have a Replacement Pin and Lanyard for a Trailer Breakaway Switch
  • If you have the Tekonsha trailer breakaway kit you will need the Replacement Tekonsha Trailer breakaway Switch, part number 420000, to replace your lost or broken cable and pin. If you have a Hopkins Breakaway system then you can order the Replacement Cable and Pin for Hopkins Breakaway Switches, part number HM20051 which works on the HM20059 and HM20060 breakaway switches.

  • Re Inserting Pin into Breakaway Switch
  • The piece of the switch that pulled out is keyed, so that it can only be inserted back into the switch one way. Try rotating the piece, eventually you will find the position in which it will go in. You will also want to make sure that the pin was not damaged.

  • Can a 3-Wire Breakaway Switch Be Substituted for a 2-Wire Breakaway Switch
  • Yes, you can use a 3-wire breakaway switch like part # HM20059 in place of a 2-wire breakaway switch like part # HM20010. The connections will be the same and the only differences is that the 2-wire switch grounds through the mounting hardware whereas the 3-wire switch grounds with a single wire. The blue wire on the switch will connect to the electric brake wire coming from the trailer side connector. The black wire goes to the breakaway battery. If it turns out it is not the switch...

  • No Brakes On Trailer When Pin Is Pulled On Breakaway Switch
  • I have attached a couple of helpful articles that explain how to install and test breakaway systems. I spoke with my contact at Hopkins and they told me that the light should not illuminate unless the cable has been pulled. Since you said the light is blinking when hooked up, it sounds like there may be a problem in the wiring. You can also test the battery to make certain it has a full charge. If you do not have the breakaway system wired correctly, the brakes may not be getting the...

  • Wiring 3-Wire Breakaway Switch as Replacement for 2-Wire Switch
  • You can absolutely wire up a 3-wire breakaway switch like the Hopkins LED Breakaway Switch with 7" Lead Wires # HM20059 to replace your 2-wire switch; the difference is that the 3-wire switch has a dedicated ground wire while the 2-wire switch grounds through its mounting hardware. The Hopkins LED Breakaway Switch # HM20059 has the white ground wire, a blue wire which will splice into the brake wire coming out of your trailer connector and a black wire which will connect to the breakaway box.

  • How to Wire Hopkins Breakaway Switch # HM20059 with Hydrastar Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator
  • The yellow wire from the Hydrastar # HBA16 will connect to the blue wire of the Breakaway Switch # HM20059. The blue wire from the Breakaway Box # HM20121 connects to the black wire from the switch. The white wire from the switch is strictly a ground for the LED light and should connect directly to the trailer's frame.

  • Replacement Breakaway Kit Switch Recommendation for RV Breakaway System
  • Put the pin back in and check the wiring of the switch to make sure nothing was damaged. Nothing should be reset but the switch could have been damaged or the wiring as well. For a replacement switch though we have the Hopkins kit part # HM20059 which would work well as a replacement.

  • How to Turn Off LED Indicator on Hopkins LED Breakaway Switch
  • In order to turn off/deactivate the LED indicator light on the Hopkins LED Breakaway Switch # HM20059 referenced in your question, you simply will not connect the white ground wire on the unit. If the white wire is not grounded, the LED indicator will not function but everything else will work like normal. For a non-LED version, you can also use the Hopkins Replacement Break-Away Switch # HM20010.

  • Replacement Breakaway Pin for Landa ECOS Trailer
  • If you can provide me with the brand and model of the breakaway system that is used on your Landa ECOS Trailer then I can go about seeing if we have a replacement breakaway pin for you. However, the breakaway pins are not all universal. Unfortunately, I don't have any information as to what the brand and model is for your trailer. Therefore, the only option we can currently offer you is a new switch and pin, the Tekonsha Trailer Breakaway Kit part # 2005-P for two wire systems or the Hopkins...
