I wanted to reach out to you in regards to your review on the Curt breakaway battery. You mentioned that you have not used the kit. I wanted to ask if there was something about the kit that has made you not want to use it or if you just have not had the need to install it yet?

It turns out that pulling CDL rated fifth wheels requires I use a full size battery for the braking system. I never really needed it in the first place. Those are rated to stop only smaller bumper pull type.

  • Clamp Size for the Curt Breakaway Battery Kit part # C52026
    The clamp of the Curt Breakaway kit part # C52026 that you referenced is 3 inches wide and 1-1/2 inches tall. It would work well on a 2 inch wide frame rail.

  • Does a Breakaway System Need To Have Its Own Battery
    The breakaway system actually must be attached to its own separate battery by law in most states. Therefore, I cannot recommend that you use a seperate, auxiliary battery on the trailer or the vehicle for that matter for the breakaway switch. The most cost effective breakaway system we have for you is the Curt Soft Trac II Trailer Breakaway Kit part # C52026. I have attached a photo for you to show how it will need to be wired.

  • Trailer Breakaway System Battery Requirements for 5th Wheel
    A trailer breakaway system must have a dedicated battery on the trailer. If it did not have its own battery the breakaway system would not operate if the trailer connector disconnected from the vehicle. A dedicated breakaway battery is required so that an uncoupled trailer's brakes will activate to bring it to a stop, but a second backup battery on the trailer is not required. I linked our main page for trailer breakaway kits. We offer basic kits like # C52026 and kits with a built-in...

  • Should The Breakaway Switch Be Wired Through a Circuit Breaker On Travel Trailer Battery?
    The wiring on your trailer is correct. The Breakaway Switch # C52010 does get wired directly to the battery without a fuse or circuit breaker. This ensures that in the event the trailer becomes disconnected the brakes activate. A circuit breaker could fail resulting in a failure for the braking system to activate correctly. Personally, I recommend removing the battery when in storage and placing it on a Maintainer # 329-GENIUS1 at home. This helps to extend battery life and will reduce...

  • Does The Curt Soft Trac II Trailer Breakaway Kit Come With A Battery Charger
    Breakaway batteries are typically just wired to the 12v power wire in the trailer's junction box so that the battery can charge while connected to the tow vehicle. The Curt Soft Trac II Trailer Breakaway Kit # C52026 comes with a ground wire already connected to the battery. You can run this directly to the frame with a ring terminal and self-tapping screw. For the power wire you can use some 14ga wire # DW02408-1 and just run it to the junction box on the trailer and connect it to the...

  • Does the Brake Output Wire Get Attached to a 12 Volt Trailer Battery
    In order to rewire your trailer, I strongly recommend you use the Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit part # e99011 with the Bonded 4 Wire part # 16-4B-1. This is going to ensure you have all the correct wire gauge and the junction box makes for a clean install as well as an easy way to troubleshoot if you ever have issues. In regards to the brake output wire part # 10-1-1, this will receive power from the tow vehicle's brake controller via the 7-way, not a battery during normal braking. However,...

  • Adding Trailer Brakes to a 3.5K Dexter EZ Lube Axle and Brake Control/7-Way on 2016 Subaru Outback
    The brakes you have chosen, # 23-468-469, are compatible with the hub and drum assembly # 84556UC3-EZ and those assemblies will fit the Dexter 3.5K EZ Lube axle. The thing about this hub and drum is the bolt pattern. It has a 5 on 5 bolt pattern which is not very common anymore. I would verify that is indeed the pattern you need by using our help article on measuring for bolt pattern which I have linked for you. If you have a different bolt pattern let me know and I can make some recommendations. Wiring...
