Video Transcript for Review of Bright Way Trailer Breakaway Kit - Kit with Charger - BW94FR

Today we're going to take a look at the Trailer Breakaway ICU Kit with the 12 volt five amp hour battery, the charger, and the wire loom by Bright Way. Now this breakaway system will activate your trailer's electric brakes if the trailer disconnects from your tow vehicle. This kit is a Breakaway ICU system and the ICU stands for incident crisis unit. This will signal the trailers lights to turn on and flash if the trailer disconnects from your tow vehicle. So this kit, besides applying the brakes to stop the trailer in a runaway situation will also allow the trailer lights to flash and alert everyone of the danger. Does come with a 12 volt five amp hour battery.

Also uses a 0.5 amp charger to refuel a battery when it's plugged into your tow vehicle. The LED lights will clearly indicate the status of your battery, when you push or press the test button, right here that green button says test.When you push it, right now you'll see the green line will come on says, fully charged, underneath that if the light comes on, it says needs recharge, and then the bottom one is charging. So just by pushing that, it'll tell you the status of your battery in there. Now the breakaway switch, which is this part right here, this will install onto your trailer's frame, drilling is required, and then these wires will run to this connection here. This cable will run to your tow vehicle.

So what happens is when it does come up, if it does come disconnected from your tow vehicle, it will pull this cable, which would remove that pin, which would activate the system.This one is a side loading case, so it's very easy to access from the side. Comes with a nice wire loom, that will protect and contain your wires neatly when it's installed. And at the very top of the box, it does have a wiring diagram that'll show you how your wires connect to everything. But that should do it for the review on the Trailer Breakaway ICU kit with the 12 volt five amp hour battery, the charger and the wire loom, and it's by Bright Way.

This unit works great! Once I reviewed the wiring diagram carefully and recognized that wire colors did not control how to hook things up, and that you had to make sure of the wire functions on the plug side, hookup was a snap. However, this kit has the ICU unit which is supposed to cause trailer lights to flash in event of disconnect, but the wiring diagram does not have any diagram for the extra wire which controls the ICU. In addition, no wiring diagram on the etrailer site shows what to do with that wire. I hooked it up to the marker lights of the trailer, but when I test the unit, no lights flash. I suggest etrailer add instructions for this connection on its site.
