Video Transcript for Pollak Wiring 38630 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 38630. This is the 30 amp, in line circuit breaker. It's a perpendicular mount. It's going to be manufactured from Pollock Accessories and Parts. Two piece design, so you're going to have the mounting bracket that's going to be spot welded onto this portion here. It's going to feature a cycling automatic reset, so it cycles continuously during over current condition and it's going to return to run mode when the source of over current is removed.

It's going to feature two studs. The copper colored one is going to be for the battery terminal. The zinc plated one is going to be for auxiliary terminal. Straight mounting bracket. If we take a measurement between the holes on there, center on center, that's going to be about 1 9/16ths of an inch.

Those holes are going to have a diameter of 3/16ths of an inch. This is SAE standard J553 compliant. When it comes to different types of applications that this would work on, it's going to work great for accessory circuits, cooling fans, door locks, head lamps, tail lamps, window lifts, sunroofs, trailering packages, electric brake controls, things of that nature. The current rating is going to be 30 DC amps and then the voltage rating is going to be 12 VDC. That's voltage direct current. When it goes to the operating temperature you're looking at negative 10 degrees F to 150 degrees F and storage temperature is going to be -20 degrees F to 200 degrees F.

That's going to do it for our review of part number 38630. This is the 30 amp in line circuit breaker from Pollock Accessories and Parts. .

Worked perfect just had to shorten studs so hood spring would clear them when closed. 542943


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.

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. 488945

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. 442299

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. 371586

  • How to Install a Brake Controller in a 1994 Dodge Ram 1500 with Factory 7-Way Connector
  • There isn't a custom brake controller wiring harness available for your 1994 Dodge Ram 1500. It is possible that Dodge makes one that will fit your truck but as far as an aftermarket one none are available for the 1994 models. A brake controller would have to be partially hardwired in. The custom harnesses are only confirmed to fit 1995 and later models. To install the controller you will just need about 25 feet or so of wire # 12-1-1, sold by the foot, and a 30 amp circuit breaker #...

  • Can Trailer Brake Controller be Used on Harley Davidson Motorcycle Pulling Small Trailer
  • The Curt Spectrum Trailer Brake Controller # C51170 can be absolutely be used with your Harley pulling a small trailer for your pups (and in the process making your wife happy). Normally with a motorcycle you want to use a time-delayed controller like the Curt Discovery # C51120 but since the Spectrum's main unit can be mounted at any angle, this is one of the proportional controllers that can be used so long as you can find a good mounting point for both the main unit and the control...

  • I spoke to my contact and he informed me that the solenoid will need to be tapped into at least a 10 amp fuse to be able to power the solenoid's switch mechanism. He also told me that the amp draw will not be limited by the amp rating of the fuse that the ignition wire is tapped into. I recommend the Firestone fuse tap # F2526 for your solenoid installation. You will want to start at the battery and wire in the circuit breaker # 38630 then connect this to the 12v solenoid like...

The controller has an easy-to-read LCD display and provides user-friendly diagnostics to alert you of any issues. I have attached a review video of this brake controller for you.

  • You can use a circuit tester like # ALL640595 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...

The first way is to hardwire in the controller. The white wire goes to the negative battery terminal, the black wire to the positive battery terminal via a 20 or 30 amp circuit breaker, # 9506P or # 38360. The red wire connects to the wire on the brake switch that shows a signal on a circuit tester, #...

  • As a first step, you would need to select a brake controller. I would recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. The P2 is extremely reliable and easy to use, which makes it one of our all-time best selling brake controllers. Most of the Chevy trucks of that era had a blue and an orange or red wire ran along the frame rail for installing the controller. At the rear of the vehicle, they usually terminate on the end of the drivers side frame rail or above the spare tire. In the engine...

  • What Size Fuse or Circuit Breaker Should be Used for Brake Controller on a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado
  • The reason you would not want to install a 30 amp fuse or circuit breaker in a 4 brake magnet application, when installing a Prodigy P2 brake controller, # 90885, is that the extra amperage required to break the circuit could cause an issue with the wiring on the trailer or vehicle because it would take longer for the circuit to spike to 30 amps. In applications with 6 to 8 brake magnets or more, more amperage is required to activate the brakes properly so the time for the amperage spike...

  • How to Determine Circuit Breaker Amperage Rating for a Brake Controller Install

If I were you, I would just run the 12 volt power wire from the brake controller directly to the battery with the recommended circuit breaker for that particular controller placed 6" for the positive terminal. The problem that you are going to run into...
