Video Transcript for CTS Trailer Breakaway Kit - Kit Only - HBA-EBA Review

Today we're going to take a loot at the breakaway kit for the Hydrastar XL trailer brake actuators. Now this battery box is very easy to install, it's easy to access, and it's built to take the weather and the shock of trailer life. It's a newly designed box, which is perfect fit for the Hydrastar XL trailer brake actuators. This box is also ideal for other systems requiring a higher amp hour battery. The package would include everything shown here on the table. Comes with the battery itself, the battery case with the lid, the breakaway switch, mounting hardware, and a nice set of detailed instructions. I'll start with the battery box.

It's made of an extra strong glass filled nylon material for weather and chemical resistance, including brake fluid. It will mount easily from the side. Right here you can see the holes. And on the very bottom it has holes so you can mount it through the bottom also. As you can see it's a nice two piece molded design.

Provides easy access to the battery. The dimensions on the just the box itself at the widest point, I'm going to include the mounting brackets, coming right at 10 1/2 inches wide. Overall height, coming right at 7 3/4 inches tall. And the total depth is going to be right at 3 7/8 inches deep. On the battery right here itself, the specs on this it's a 12 volt 17 amp hour rating. It is a sealed lead acid battery.

No maintenance. Dimensions on this, this is about 7 inches. Overall height, right at 6 1/2 inches tall. And the total depth on it is right at 3 inches deep. So basically you just open your battery box, drop your battery in there.

Put your lid right on top. Put your bolts through there. Put your nuts on there and just tighten them down. That'll secure them into place. And again this part does include the breakaway switch. But that should do it. Put a review on the breakaway kit for the Hydrastar XL trailer brake actuators.

Incomplete wiring harness! Worst of all the battery was bad. not just dead but 3 bad cells. After exchange, the replacement battery will just barely hold 12 volts. My guess is that Carlisle is foisting off 6 to 10 year old batteries onto it's customers! But, through all of these problems, eTrailer has been a champ!! They worked to get Carlisle to agree that it did indeed need replaced. Carlisle did not believe that I knew how to hook up the wires to the battery!!! They made me get it tested and get a statement from the place with printout that it was bad!! I really had to search for a place that would go on record saying it was bad. NEVER, NEVER buy ANY CARLISLE PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 93350

Do you have a question about this Trailer Breakaway Kit?


  • Converting Military Trailer Air Over Hydraulic Drum Brakes to Electric Over Hydraulic
  • You are correct, there are 4 electric over hydraulic braking systems, from 3 manufacturers, that can be used to eliminate the air over hydraulic actuator on your M200A1 trailer. These systems all require a breakaway system to meet DOT safety standards. I will detail each system for you so you can select the one that will work best for your truck and trailer setup. First, the Dexter Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator, # K71-650, would be a good choice because it will work with the...

  • Recommendation of Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator For 6,000-Lb Tandem Axle Trailer with Disc Brakes
  • For an electric over hydraulic brake actuator for your 6,000-lb tandem axle boat trailer with disc brakes, I have the Dexter Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator, part # K71-651, that you have referenced and the Carlisle HydraStar Electric-Hydraulic Actuator, part # HBA16. They will both require a breakaway kit like the Dexter Breakaway Kit, part # 34-285, or the Carlisle Breakaway Kit, part # HBA-EBA. The breakaway kit is required to apply the trailer brakes should the trailer become...

  • Is a Battery Charger Included with the Break-Away Kit and Battery for Hydrastar XL
  • The Cargo Towing Solutions Break-Away Kit and Battery for Hydrastar XL, # HBA-EBA, does not include a battery charger. If battery is connected to the 12-volt auxiliary circuit in the 7-way, the battery might overcharge causing damage to the battery. There is no way to regulate the power on the 12-volt auxiliary circuit to the breakaway battery. It is recommend instead to use a charger like the Trailer Breakaway Kit Battery Charger, # 20011. The kit is easy to install, black wire...

  • Will the HydraStar Electric-Hydraulic Actuator Work on a Boat Trailer with Surge Brakes
  • The HydraStar Electric-Hydraulic Actuator for Disc Brakes, # HBA16, will work with the surge brake system on your trailer, assuming your trailer has disc brakes. If your trailer has drum brakes, then you will want to use the HydraStar Electric-Hydraulic Actuator for Drum Brakes, # HBA-10. You will attach the brake line from your surge coupler to the fitting on the HydraStar system. This will allow the brakes to activate based on an electrical signal that is sent to the HydraStar system,...

You will want to check to make sure you have the correct type of battery installed. The battery recommended is the Carlisle Break-Away Kit and Battery for Hydrastar XL, #...

  • Breakaway Kit to Comply with DOT Regulations when Using the Carlisle HydraStar Actuator
  • The Break-Away Kit and Battery, part # HBA-EBA, for the Hydrastar Electric-Hydraulic Actuator, part # HBA-10, is the correct unit to provide power to the hydraulic pump for the specified amount of time to meet DOT regulations. The battery in this breakaway kit is a 17 amp-hour rated battery, and most normal breakaway kits for standard electric trailer brakes only utilize a 5 amp-hour battery and would not provide power to meet DOT regulations with the Hydrastar unit. If a breakaway...

  • Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator that Does Not Require a Brake Controller
  • I have the perfect solution for you. Take a look at the Cargo Towing Solutions Hydrastar XL # HBAC10-CLR. With this electric over hydraulic actuator there is no need for a hard-wired brake controller in the tow vehicle. It comes with a handheld unit that plugs into a power outlet in the vehicle cab and communicates with the unit on the trailer wirelessly! This unit does work with drum brakes. I also recommend adding breakaway kit # HBA-EBA if the trailer does not already have one. It...
