It's great for maintaining charge on batteries of recreational vehicles, motorcycles, tractors, really anything that's stored in the off season.It works on 12 volt batteries that have at least a four amp hour output.

I haven't installed this yet. My trailer was set up all wrong to be able to charge the battery when hooked up and towing. I bought this as a precation for charging the battery on the hot wire to the trailer from my 7 pin pug. 212074

hint: it's a wire with a resistor. Effective but I'm not sure how it's patented. 49241

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


  • How is Tekonsha Break Away Battery Charger # 1024 Wired
  • The Tekonsha Break Away System Battery Charger you mentioned, part # 1024 is easy to install. The blue wire connects to the break away switch wire that connects to the battery (not the other leg that attaches to the brake circuit on the trailer), and the black wire connects to the 12-volt accessory circuit from the 7-way trailer connector. I produced a diagram for you, which should make it more clear for you. For more information regarding trailer break away systems, click on the...

  • Trailer Breakaway Switch Smoked/Melted When Trailer Was Unattended
  • The Tekonsha Replacement Trailer Breakaway Switch # 420000 that you referenced should work fine as a replacement part for your trailer's breakaway system. As for the cause for a smoking/melting switch, my first thought is a malfunctioning breakaway battery charger. If this unit failed it might have taken out the switch with it. We offer the Tekonsha Battery Charger for Trailer Breakaway Systems # 1024, whose installation is shown in the linked diagram.

  • How to Wire In the Tekonsha Battery Charger for Trailer Breakaway Systems - 12 Volt DC # 1024
  • I have included a diagram showing how breakaway battery charger # 1024 gets wired into a trailer. Basically, the black wire will connect to the 12 volt wire coming from the trailer connector. The blue wire will go to the blue wire that goes the breakaway switch from the breakaway battery. The red charger part connects directly to the positive battery terminal (not shown in the picture).

  • Will Continuously Charging Breakaway Battery from Tow Vehicle Cause Any Damage
  • Using the Tekonsha Battery Charger # 1024, or any charger off of the tow vehicle's battery, will not cause any damage to your breakaway switch. The amount of charge will not charge the battery from dead to full but will maintain the charge. In addition, if you leave the trailer plugged into the tow vehicle's connector for a long period of time it will continue to draw power from the vehicle's battery. In this case it is possible to drain the vehicle battery. To avoid the draining...

  • Difference Between Tekonsha Breakaway Battery Chargers
  • You are correct that the only real difference between the Tekonsha Breakaway Battery Charger # 2024-07 and the Tekonsha # 1024 is that the # 2024-07 features an automatic float mode to prevent overcharging of the battery. This is the more ideal charger if you plan on going on longer trips where this might become an issue. As you mentioned both chargers will work well with 12V battery systems that have a 4 amp per hour minimum output. I have attached a short video demonstration on the...

  • Recommended Charger for Maintaining Automotive Batteries
  • For a car battery you want to use a charger designed for that application, such as one of the CTEK units shown on the linked page. For example, their MULTI US 3300 12-Volt Universal Battery Charger # CTEK56158 is a 4-step, fully automatic charger with pulse maintenance. This can both charge a depleted battery and maintain a charged one. Charging time for 80% charge of a 14-Ah battery is only 3 to 4 hours. I have owned one of the CTEK chargers for several years and it does a good job on...
