Video Transcript for Tekonsha Trailer Breakaway Kit 2024-07 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Tekonsha Two Stage 12V DC Battery Charger. This is a DC to DC heavy duty quick maintenance charger. Temperature compensated design provides continuous re-charge, so it actually features an automatic shut-off feature that will not permit the unit to overcharge the break away battery. It's also a small compact size that's designed to fit securely into the Tekonsha break away battery case. This is going to be ideal for seasonal storage and maintenance of RV's, motorcycles, snowmobiles, lawn tractors, and any other vehicles that may sit unused for periods of time. This is designed for 12V battery systems with a four amp per hour minimum output. You can see here that it has a total of four wires.

The two coming off of this end would connect directly to the break away battery. The other two wires would connect to the primary battery. It's labeled on there, primary battery. On the back side of that label red is positive, black is negative. On this label, these wires are designed for the break away battery.

It's right there labeled on there, and then again red is positive, black is negative. We'll go ahead and give you the measurements of the actual charger real quick. Edge to edge this direction, that's going to give us a measurement of pretty close to 3-5/8". Edge to edge going this direction we're looking at about 2.5", and then the thickness is going to measure about, just a little over 1.5", maybe 1-9/16". That's going to do it for today's look at the Tekonsha Two Stage 12V DC Battery Charger.

Ask the Experts about this Tekonsha Accessories and Parts

  • How to Charge Trailer Battery When Being Towed
    You would want to run a length of 10 gauge wire like part # 10-1-1 from the 12 volt accessory circuit of your trailer wiring (1:00 pin of your 7-way) to the positive battery post of the trailer battery. This will give you the best and easiest way to put a maintenance charge on the battery as you are towing.

  • Why Would Someone Buy a DC to DC Charger with 20 Amps?
    The Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger - Dual Input - DC to DC - 12V/24V - 25 Amp # 331-BCDC1225D is primarily for people that want to ensure they have full and maintained batteries when they get to their campsite. Without a strong enough DC to DC charger, the larger battery banks barely get a charge while traveling, so they are not adequate for shorter trips or longer stays with battery power. These are really great options for people that want to camp off the grid and they can also...

  • How to Keep a Flat Towed Vehicles Battery Charged
    I do have a better option for you but the Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger part # 2024-07 is mainly used to charge a breakaway systems battery which is much smaller than the 12 volt battery you have on your toad. A better option for you would be to run a charge line kit like part # RM-156-25 from the tow vehicle to the toad. If you are towing the vehicle behind an RV than you would also most likely need a charge line kit for the RV like part # RM-156-75. I have attached an...

  • Auxiliary Trailer Battery Charger Recommendation
    It sounds like the part # 2024-07 would be the correct charger that you would need. This charger will take 12 volts and charge a 12 volt auxiliary battery. The input range of this charger is 9-16 volts and this charger has two stages.

  • Recommended Inexpensive Battery Charger for Horse Trailer
    The Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07 will give you just over what is called a maintenance charge to your battery. This does mean that it will charge your battery slowly and it will even shut off to avoid overcharging your battery which is the worst enemy of lead-acid batteries. The depleted battery has different implications from different people. For a battery that we would consider dead (unusable in current charging state), it would take a long time to charge...

  • Do I Need a Tekonsha Tow Charger to Charge the Battery On My Travel Trailer
    To charge the battery on your travel trailer while towing you will need to run the power wire from your 7-way trailer connector to the trailer battery. This wire will use the vehicle charging system to charge the battery while you are in tow and then the inverter/charger, in the trailer, will charge the battery when you are hooked to AC power. You will need to check your truck 7-way connector with a circuit tester, item # 40376 if you need one, to see if the power wire is switched with...

  • Can the Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07 be Used for Deep Cycle Battery
    You are on the right track with your thinking, and I do have a solution for you, but the Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07 that you referenced is for smaller breakaway batteries and will not work for your application. Since you are wanting to charge and maintain a deep cycle battery you will need to use the Redarc BCDC Dual Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1240D instead. This comes with a way to connect your battery to the alternator as well as a solar panel like part # TLA7713...

  • 12 Volt DC Battery Charger Recommendation for Charging an Auxiliary Battery with a Truck
    This Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger, part # 2024-07, is designed to charge 12 volt systems while being used on a 12 volt power source like your truck has. However, the # 2024-07 is designed for maintaining smaller batteries that go through extended periods of not being used. It is not designed to charge a larger vehicle battery like the one you have in your truck. I would recommend you use a CTEK MULTI US 7002 12-Volt Universal Battery Charger w/ Pulse Maintenance, part...

  • DC to DC Battery Charger Recommendation
    I believe what you are looking for is the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1240D. This charger can be used as a DC to DC charger and can take a maximum input current of 40 amps. This charger has an output voltage of 20 volts and a maximum amperage output of 40 Amps and 600 watts. This charger can even be used with solar panels if you did not want to keep the charger hooked to a vehicle battery. The Tekonsha Battery Charger, # 2024-07, that you referenced is a maintenance...

  • Tekonsha Two Stage Breakaway Battery Charger Shows No Output Voltage
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07. I also was having a hard time getting the meter to read amperage or voltage output but I eventually was able to have the probes positioned in such a way that it did read amperage. Apparently either the meters or the chargers are sensitive to slight changes in position and that affects the reading. This is also a 2 stage charger which can skew the results since it would not be sensing a battery...

  • Input and Output Range of the Tekonsha Two Stage Charger part # 2024-07
    The Tekonsha Two Stage Charger part # 2024-07 that you referenced has the input range of 9-16 volts with a 2.0 amp max and an output of 12 volts and 800 mA.

  • Charge Current of Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger
    The Tekonsha Two Stage 12V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07 has a maximum charge current of 1.2 amps and is designed to charge breakaway batteries. Instead I recommend a battery charger such as the CTEK MULTI US 7002 12-Volt Universal Battery Charger with Pulse Maintenance and Backup Power # CTEK56353 for your accessory battery but you will need to use a dedicated battery for your breakaway such as the Hopkins Engager Push-To-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit w/ Built-In Charger # 20099.

  • Will Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07 Reverse Charge
    The Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07 only allows current to flow in one direction. You would not have to worry about the charge going the opposite direction.

  • Can AC to DC Adapter be Connected to Tekonsha Battery Charger Running to Trailer Battery
    The 12 volt devices that are connected to the battery are going to draw power from the battery whether plugged into the charger (which is plugged into the AC/DC adapter) or not. When the charger and adapter are plugged in the devices will draw power from the battery while the charger provides a charge at the same time. For the devices to draw power directly from the AC/DC adapter they would have to be connected to it separately and directly and they would still draw from the battery...

  • Recommendation for Charging an Auxiliary Battery
    I think your best option would be to get a Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07. Basically you would need to install this onto the 12 volt power source of your trailer connector and then run it to positive and negative sides of your auxiliary battery.

  • Breakaway Battery Charger is Only Showing 1.5 Volts Output
    A breakaway battery charger such as # 2024-07 should be putting out 12 volts to the battery. Less than that could be an indication of a bad ground connection or a problem inside the charger. For the ground make sure it is connected to a clean and corrosion free bare metal surface. The problem with the wire colors you mentioned is common. It is because there is actually no standard for trailer wire colors. You should always go by function. You can use the help article I have linked to...

  • Can Tekonsha Charger 2024-07 Charge a 12 Volt, 7 Amp Hour Battery
    The Tekonsha charger # 2024-07 is designed to charge small breakaway system batteries (4 amp hours or greater) so it should work with the small 12 volt battery that you have. I would go with 12 gauge wire # 12-1-1, sold in increments of 1 foot, instead of the small 16 gauge wire. The best way to charge the battery is going to be to use AC power and an AC charger such as # CTEK56353.

  • Recommended Battery Charger for Battery Powering 3000-lb Electric Winch
    The Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07 is primarily intended for use with smaller trailer breakaway batteries like the 5-amp-hour battery in # 20099. Its output is a smallish 800-milliamps. Usually an electric winch rated for 3000-lbs will demand substantially more power than a breakaway battery. For instance, even 2K winch # BDW15008 with no load on it will draw 8-amps, and need 120-amps under full load. A battery with the capacity to properly power a 3K winch will...

  • Can Any of the Available Breakaway Battery Chargers be Used for a 12 Volt 8 Amp Hour Battery
    Provided that the connected battery is a 12 volt battery, which in this case it is, you can use any of the breakaway battery chargers including # 2024-07. Usually though you see breakaway batteries rated for 5 amp hours so on an 8 amp hour battery it would take a little longer to charge up the battery.

  • Battery Charger Needed to Power the Bulldog Winch Utility Winch # BDW15008
    We do have AC - DC chargers but the Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07 that you referenced is for DC - DC charging. To charge a bigger 650 CCA battery to operate the Bulldog Winch Utility Winch # BDW15008 you will need to use a charger like the CTEK MULTI US 7002 # CTEK56353. This plugs into AC and converts it to DC for the battery plus it will maintain your battery. You can leave it plugged up and not have to worry about your battery being overcharged.

  • Parts Needed to Add Headlight, Battery and Wiring to Adult Trike
    It is certainly possible to add a 12V battery, wiring and lights to your adult trike to make it easier to see. This will probably be easiest if the bike has a basket or other cargo carrying part to store the battery. That battery needs to be rated for enough amp-hours to power the specific light for the period of time you plan to use it. The batteries we offer are trailer breakaway batteries like # HM20008. We also have kits with a battery box too, like # 1026. I suggest high-efficiency...

    Since the 12 volt battery you want to charge is rated for 18 amp hours you can use a breakaway battery charger # 2024-07. This is a DC to DC charger and will shut off automatically so as not to over charge the battery.

  • Troubleshooting Dying Vehicle Batteries after Tekonsha Battery Charger Install
    There could be a number of issues could be causing the problem you are experiencing. Since you said your truck batteries were dead after only 2 minutes of the # 2024-07 being installed and the fact that when your truck is turned off there is no 12 volt supply to the charger I suspect that the problem is on your truck. You could have your battery and alternator tested at an auto parts store, most places will do that for free. Another option you have would be to remove the # 2024-07 and...

  • Could Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07 be Used as Power Source
    You would not want to use the # 2024-07 as a power source. Since this normally attaches to a 12 volt trailer wiring circuit you'd instead want to use that power source instead for powering a 12 volt circuit.

  • Can Tekonsha Break Away System Battery Charger be Used to Charge Auxiliary Jet-Ski Battery
    Tekonsha battery charger # 2024-07 is designed for small 12 volt break away system batteries that typically have a 5 amp hour rating. If your battery is 12 volt and greater than 4 amp hours then you could use this charger provided the personal watercraft has an alternator/generator that keeps the regular battery charged. If the battery is rated too high, like a regular car battery, the charger would hardly be effective if at all. For any charger be sure the connections you make are...

  • Will Tekonsha Trailer Battery Charger Fully Charge a Dead Battery through the Trailer Connector
    A fully discharged battery might require a little extra assistance in order for the Tekonsha charger # 2024-07 to take effect. Bad things can happen to batteries once they are totally dead. We do have some pretty substantial battery chargers that can revitalize a battery, like # CTEK56353. But even this charger cannot save a battery if it is too far gone.
