Easy to install, was a direct replacement for the older existing unit. Really like the status indicator, good to be able to check that the battery is charged and ready.




by:

Great unit! Came charged and at a record shipping time to boot which was good. Showed up Friday day, had it on Friday afternoon, boat trailer rolling for the weekend! Thanks folks! Be back soon




by:

It is always a pleasure to order all my parts from etrailer. They always have what I'm looking for at a good price and very helpful if I have any questions.




by:

Never got to use the unit. I am sure it would have worked perfectly fine but It was shipped in it's original box thus when i finally got around to installing it --upon opening the box, the unit was damaged.
It is partially on me for not actually opening the box when it first arrived but there needs to be better care in packaging and shipping items.. even after emailing an FYI, subsequent orders have been packaged poorly as well.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

  • Trailer Breakaway Kit For Replacement of Melted Kit
    I'm certainly sorry to hear that; there are a couple of issues that may have caused this, from a bad kit to the far more likely scenario of there being a short somewhere along the wiring, though it's not possible for me to say with any real certainty. I do have to say that the breakaway definitely needs its own battery, which is required by law in most states. I highly recommend going with a breakaway kit that has its own battery, from Bright Way. You can choose from either a 5 or 10...

  • Is Trailer Breakaway Kit a One-And-Done System
    Good question, but no, a breakaway kit like the Bright Way # 3802311 or Hopkins Engage # 20400 are not one-and-done systems. You can pull the pin and then reuse the system, and in fact, you'll want to pull the pin when testing one after an install to ensure it activates your brakes.

  • Is Bright Way 3802311 Trailer Break Away Kit Compatible with Triple Axle Trailers
    According to Curt, their # C52042 Trailer Breakaway Kit is compatible with single, tandem or tri axle trailers. I've inked to a product demonstration video that you might find helpful.

  • What Battery Comes with Bright Way Push-to-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit # 3802311

  • Recommended Trailer Break Away System for 9000 lb Enclosed Car Hauler
    Since you're dealing with a fairly heavy trailer, I'd recommend going with the Bright Way # 3802311 break away system. The kit includes a 10Ah battery and a 2 amp charger. The battery box features a nice push-to-test feature that allows you to check on the status of your break away system with the push of a button. The 10Ah battery is a must because if you get stopped for a DOT inspection, the system needs to be able to hold the trailer for at least 10 minutes if the switch is pulled. I'll...

  • What is Difference Between Breakaway Kit for Trailer that's Rated for Tandem Axles and Quad Axles
    The difference between a trailer breakaway system that can work on a trailer with up to 2 axles and one that can handle up to 4 axles is the battery the kit has and the amount of amp hours it can provide since the more brake assemblies there are the more amps it takes to activate them all. The part # 3802311 is a 10 amp hour setup that could work on 4 axles whereas the kit you referenced # HM20001 has a battery with only a 5 amp hour rating and that's why it's rated for use with tandem...

  • Correct Replacement 10 Amp Hour Battery for Bright Way Push-to-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit

  • 7-Way Vehicle Power Adapter for Activating Low Amp Trailer Lights
    Yes, that all sounds correct. The computer systems on the newer trucks require a constant draw to provide power to the vehicle's 7-Way connector. To work around this you will need the 7-Way Vehicle Power Adapter item # FR87PR. This plugs directly into your 7-way connectors and provides enough power from your Denali to register your tail lights and to activate them. I have linked a review video below that will show you how this product works. It was originally designed to power cameras...

  • Does Trailer Breakaway Battery Discharge Quickly When Pin is Pulled
    It sure will. Per DOT regulations, a properly functioning breakaway system should be able to hold the trailer brakes engaged for a minimum of 15 minutes. Past that point, the battery(s) would wear down pretty quickly if you're speaking of a small 5 amp battery like # TK2023. This is why some folks will wire the breakaway system into a larger battery that's also used for a powered trailer winch or jack, which isn't a great idea if you've used your winch or jack quite a bit and the battery...

  • Largest Available Breakaway Battery for Trailer
    I may have a solution for you, but the largest breakaway system battery we offer comes with a 10 amp hour battery # BRW87FR; the complete system is the Bright Way Push-to-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit with 2-Amp Charger and 10 Ah Battery - Top Load # 3802311. I'm not aware of a breakaway system that uses a battery that large and this would be the best solution we have available for this.

  • Could Trailer Breakaway Battery Power RV Powered Jack
    If the jack drew less than 10 amps the Bright Way Push-to-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit with 2-Amp Charger and 10 Ah Battery # 3802311 would work decently but typically they draw more than that. A better option would be a deep cycle battery like the part # BRW34FR which is rated for 75 amps. Then for a battery box the # 329-HM300BKS would work great.

  • Converting 2016 Diamond C 10k Axle Trailer and Iron Panther 7K Axle Trailer to Disc Brakes
    The D100G axles on your 2016 Diamond C trailer are 10,000 lb axles. Based on the manufacture date you need the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit - 11" Rotor - 8 on 6-1/2 - E-Coat Finish - Leaf Spring - 10,000-lb Dexter # K2R1058D11E which fits the # 008-430-03 hub made after May 2013.
