Cheaply made. Product gets a 3 star. Shipping gets a zero star. Your warehouse picked a product that had the all important bracket broken off. It was not in the box so the extreme volume and lack of packers delayed my installation. Thank you for shipping correct item 2 weeks late. This is becoming a regular policy.

I had a couple of corroded breakers on my 12 year old travel trailer that caused a lack of 12v power from the house battery to the 12v system components. The replacements solved the problem. I have purchased from etrailer before and I've always been completely satisfied with the products.

I ordered this controller and additional parts from Laser. Before committing to buying, I asked him many questions. He answered them all in about a clear and concise way as possible while presenting a picture of how to install the device. It arrived today and I haven't started, but he also emphasized that I could call if I ran into any difficulties. I'll follow up when the job is complete. My experience in this context could not have been better. Michael

Excellent quality and strength. Why skimp on something as important as your hitch? I have purchased three of these Draw Tites - I guess a repeat customer will scream about the true quality a company can garner from repeat customers. When you pull show cars worth six figures, you can't afford a poorly made hitch. Step up, step out, and don't fret what you are pulling.

Perfect connector for what I was looking for on my 2019 RAV4. I originally installed it with the L bracket, but later changed it to be flush in the bumper. Looks very clean. The prefab pigtail made install into the car very easy as well.

It's a circuit breaker! We got this wire our small teardrop for underway charging. I put it inline after the relay/solenoid, wired so we wouldn't exceed reasonable current flow in 10ga. wiring. I don't think it's ever tripped, except when I loaded it for testing. Would use again.

Works perfect on my travel trailer, in between my converter and my auxiliary battery. So cheap, that I bought 2 so as to have a spare...why not? Processing and shipping was super fast, I ordered on Wednesday afternoon and had it Saturday. It was awesome to see the video provided by eTrailer, as it helped convince me that this was the exact part I needed. I'll be shopping here again!

I should have ordered the in-line breaker without mounting bracket......discovered it, but you were so fast the parts had been shipped..... I removed the bracket and installed it my Jeepster. It does the job.

Worked perfect just had to shorten studs so hood spring would clear them when closed.


Comments
You might consider relocating the breaker. If its close enough to the hood spring that you had to shorten the studs, theres a chance that on rough pavement the spring could still contact the studs, which could short out the circuit.

  • No 12V Power to 7-way connector on 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    I am happy to help you troubleshoot the 12v pin not getting power on the 7-way connector. On some Fords with factory brake controllers, the 12V pin does not show power unless you are testing it with a trailer connected. Please make sure it is a trailer with an on board trailer battery. The truck must sense the load of the battery to activate that circuit. If you have a trailer connected and the 12V pin is still not showing power, you may have a blown or missing fuse in the power distribution...

  • What Amperage Circuit Breaker Should be Used for Brake Controller Install
    That will depend on the amount of brake axles your trailer has. . The 20 amp breaker like # 9506P is for 1 and 2 axle brakes, and the 30 amp like part # 38630 is for 3 and 4 axle brakes

  • Where to Install Circuit Breaker on Trailer
    Generally a circuit breaker should be installed close to the power source. On a trailer with on-board battery power breakers are best installed near the batteries and each circuit should have a breaker of the appropriate amperage value for the device on that circuit. For example, in a tow vehicle that has a common 7-way wiring setup the 40-amp circuit breaker for the +12V power feed to the trailer is usually mounted to the firewall in the engine compartment and typically this circuit...

  • Is a Circuit Breaker Required when Installing a Brake Controller on a 2008 Cadillac Escalade
    The short answer is neither. You will not need to use a circuit breaker when installing a brake controller on your 2008 Cadillac Escalade because it already has the wiring and fuse locations for the brake controller. The 2 wires under the hood that attach to the studs at the front of the power distribution box are factory wires. Fuses will be installed (if not present already) in the locations closest to those studs. I have linked the video you mentioned and a help article explaining...

  • Should Trailer Circuit Breakers be Protected from Weather
    I wouldn't recommend leaving any electrical connection, including the ones made on a circuit breaker like part # 38630 exposed directly to the weather. Exposure to water could cause the circuit to short out. A junction box like part # 38656 provides a excellent weatherproof place for electrical connections like joining a trailer connector such as # H20046 to the lighting and brake circuits of a trailer, but it would also work extremely well for protecting circuit breakers from the...

  • Is a Circuit Breaker Needed for a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2003 Chevy Silverado Duramax 3500
    If the brake controller is connected to the 2003 Chevy Silverado tow package port (to the left of the brake pedal, second port from the left, top row) using Tekonsha Wire Replacement, # 3015-P, or a similar harness, and the truck came with a factory 7-Way, then the connection is already fused/circuit protected, so the brake controller will not need another circuit breaker. It is possible that a 7-Way was added later and the wiring and circuit breaker you see are related. But, the 2003...

  • Trailer Dome Lights Do Not Work on a Haulmark Trailer Towed By a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado
    The first step to troubleshooting your trailer dome lights is to determine how the lights are wired. If your trailer has a 4-way connector, then they will be connected to the running light circuit. If your trailer has a 7-way connector, then the dome lights will be connected to a 12 volt auxiliary power circuit coming from the trailer connector. If your trailer has a 4-way connector and the running lights on the trailer work, then there is an issue with the connection between the dome...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake Controller with No Signal on Black 12V Power Wire
    Typically for brake controllers, the black wire provides 12V power from battery to the brake controller. Since you said there is no signal on the black wire going to the controller, this tells us that there is something wrong with the wire or circuit breaker and means the controller is not getting any power. If the controller has no power, then it cannot send a brake signal back to the trailer brakes. Since this wire comes directly from the battery, there should always be signal on the...

  • Can a 30 Amp Fuse be Used Instead of a Circuit Breaker When Installing a Trailer Brake Controller
    You can use a 30 amp fuse if you wanted to. The difference is that a circuit breaker like # 38630 or # PK54530 will automatically reset should there be a short or overload. With a fuse you would have to replace it.

  • 12 Volt Circuit On 1999 Dodge Ram 7-Way Trailer Connector Does Not Charge Break Away Battery
    You can use a circuit tester like # 40376 to test the 12 volt circuit on the 7-Way to see if it is has power. If it is not and the 7-Way is factory it might just be a blown fuse to that circuit. Use the owners manual to find the location of the tow package fuses to check them. Or you can get about 20 feet of # 10-1-1 wire and attach one end to the back of the 7-Way in the 11:00 position. Route the other end under the truck, avoiding areas that may pinch or burn the wire, and up into...

  • Replacement 30 Amp In-Line Circuit Breaker - Perpendicular Mount Bracket
    The 30 amp circuit breaker # 38630 is an exact match for your current circuit breaker though it may not have W29 stamped on it. I spoke with Pollak about that designation and is a date code or batch number so you could get one that is completely different from W29.

  • How to Power Trailer Dome Light when Trailer is Not Plugged Into Tow Vehicle
    If the lights inside the trailer, and other 12 volt accessories, run exclusively off of the 12 volt circuit from the 7-Way trailer connector you will need to mount a battery on the trailer to power them when the trailer is not plugged into the tow vehicle. The way this would work is that the 12 volt wire from the 7-Way would go to the positive terminal on the battery. Your 12 volt accessories including the dome light would also need to connect to the positive battery terminal. That...

  • How to Power Enclosed Trailer Lights with Auxiliary Battery
    In order to provide lights with power outside of the tow vehicle battery you will need to add an auxiliary battery on the trailer like the Brightway # BRW34FR, as you've noted. There isn't an adapter, per se, so you will need to wire everything into the trailer; I can give you a general ideal of how it's going to need to be done. I recommend cutting off the 7 way trailer plug and then wiring that into a junction box # 38656. From there, you'll connect the cut wiring for the trailer lights...

  • Troubleshooting Interior Lights on Trailer Not Working When Connected to Tow Vehicle
    It's possible that the interior lights on your Lark enclosed trailer are simply exceeding the amperage capacity of the running light circuit on your Escalade. I recommend first verifying the amperage draw needed for the trailer's interior lights to see if this might be the issue. Otherwise it is just a matter of checking the connection from the interior lights to your running lights circuit. Since you know the 4-Way wiring on the trailer is good after testing it with 12V power, you...

  • Is the 12 Volt Circuit on Tow Packages Typically Hot or Live?
    That's a great question! It all comes down to the manufacturer some models will have a constantly active 12 Volt pin in the 7 way and some will only come on when the ignition is keyed on. Sometimes a vehicle will have the constant power option but doesn't have a fuse in place to send it through so the first step is to check the owners manual and make sure that fuse is in place and in good shape. If it is and still no power the next steps tell you how to fix this. If you have a vehicle...

  • Troubleshooting 7-Way 12 Volt ACC Circuit Not Functioning on a 2010 Chevy Silverado
    First thing you want to do is test the 12 volt accessory circuit of the 7-way on your truck with a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to determine if the truck is at fault. This will be the pin in the 1:00 position. If there is no voltage there and you made the connections under the hood of your truck the fuse or relay is most likely bad on your truck and needs to be replaced.

  • Does Circuit Breaker part # 38630 Need to Be Grounded
    The circuit breaker part # 38630 that you referenced does not require any grounding. If you wanted to zip-tie it out of the way you would not need to worry about attaching it to a metal surface so that it would be grounded.

  • Can Inline Fuse be Used to Run 12 Volt Hot Lead to 7-Way
    You can use a 30 amp fuse if you like, though I do recommend using a circuit breaker instead, the 30 Amp In-Line Circuit Breaker # 38630. This is going to be a lot easier because while you will need to replace the fuse, a circuit breaker will automatically reset. I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well if you'd like.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake Controller Working with Brake Pedal but Not with Manual Override
    If you are getting the decimal on the Reese Brakeman display when applying the brake pedal but not with the manual override lever, it is an indication that the controller is not receiving power. The LED decimal is showing up with the brake pedal because it is getting power/indication from the brake light switch. But when the manual override lever is used, power needs to come through the controller's black wire, which should be connected to the truck's battery via 30 amp circuit breaker...
