Great priced product for an older trailer. Easy installation everything I needed.

It sat thru our Minnesota winter and the battery was just fine this spring. Hooked on and it performed like new.

Just installed the trailer brake emergency battery and break-away switch. Straightforward and simple. Brake electrical system working properly. Simple install, but understand the battery box has to be mounted to something upright with wire clearance underneath. I made a couple of simple L brackets from aluminum stock leaving about 1/2" of clearance.

Working properly with no problems.

You guys are great, prompt courteous service. your people that I have dealt with are always pleasant and a joy to work with. I have referred you guys to my son an mother in law to get parts for their campers/trailers.

Thankfully, to date I have not had to “test” my break-away brake system in an on-road situation. However, periodical stationary tests prove the system works as expected. One area of improvement would be in the fasteners used to secure the battery cover. They rusted within a month. 304 stainless steel fasteners would be a recommended low cost upgrade.

good unit , works as it should, been a year and yet to have any issues. I recommend this product! easy install

e trailer came thru again, and in a timely fashion. I like their service, although I cannot use it when the service fee is proportionately too high compare to the item price.

I ordered several items to fix a trailer that had a previous shade tree mechanic fix. Items came quickly and were affordable. Website is very easy to navigate. I like to do things one time. Etrailer allows me to do just that with their expansive inventory. I have ordered several times and will continue to do so. The break away setup was easy peasy to install and had plenty of wire to make connections.

This company is excellent! They have things I didn’t even know I needed. Quick turn around time. Couldn’t be easier to get lights, hitches, jacks, brake controls (electric or electric over hydraulic). Been using this company for years and never had a problem.

Ask the Experts about this Bright Way Trailer Breakaway Kit

  • Troubleshooting Door of Bright Way Trailer Breakaway Kit Not Able to Fully Open
    The front cover of the Bright Way Push-to-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit # 3802346 is supposed to swing out like you mentioned. I attached pictures that show the door open. I'd be willing to bet the hinge on the left side of the door isn't fully seated which is causing the issue. Check to see if you can pop the hinge back onto the posts of the section of the hinge that is attached to the housing. I also attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

    The Bright Way Push-to-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit # 3802346 was designed to attach to the outside of a trailer frame like you asked about so it would work well for you. It is weather proof so that it would do fine as long as you didn't submerge it under water.

  • Breakaway Switch is Not Working After Pulling Pin
    There are many, many reasons why your breakaway switch may not be operating after pulling the pin, and of course it's really important to get that remedied. Start by going over your wiring to ensure there are no wires that are damaged, nicked, or broken. Also be sure that the battery is fully charged, and you have a good ground. Also check out the linked help article on breakaway switch wiring and compare yours to see if yours is wired correctly (I'm not sure if this is a new system...

  • Solution for Trailer Breakaway Pin that is Broke and Won't Stay Installed
    The easiest solution for a breakaway pin that keeps popping out would be to replace the entire switch since they are all universal and the install is really easy. For that the # 420000 would be a great solution that will wire right in place of what you have.

  • Parts Needed to Convert Hydraulic Brakes to Electric Brakes on a Boat Trailer 3.5K Axles
    To change your boat from hydraulic brakes to electric brakes you will need to replace the hubs and brake assemblies. The UFP hubs that you have do not have a surface suitable for a brake magnet. You will also need to add wiring for the brakes and a breakaway battery. Here is a list of parts I recommend for your trailer: -3.5K Brake Assemblies # AKEBRK-35-SA -3.5K Galvanized Hubs # AKHD-545-35-G-EZ-K or -3.5K Painted Hubs # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K (if you don't want to spend the extra...

  • Changing From Hydraulic to Electric Trailer Brakes on Trailer With 2,000 lb Axle
    I took a look at the specs of your 1998 Jayco Eagle 12UDST, and it looks like this is a single axle trailer with a 2,000 lb axle. That means you likely have a 7" hub and drum like the Dexter Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-257-5UC3-EZ, though you will want to confirm that by measuring the inside diameter of the hub. If you do have a 7" hub and drum, as well as a 4-bolt mounting flange like # 4-34, the correct electric brakes are the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 7" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies...
