Good breakaway switch, but no way to know whether the battery is fully charged.


Comments
The battery can be tested for 14Vh. During the operation, the system provides a trickle charge to maintain battery voltage. When battery voltage is under 6V, the tester circuit will not have power and the red or green light on the switch will not activate, indicating that the battery is dead. I recommend using a break away kit with a battery tester like item # 20099

The u-bolts worked great for mounting the battery box on an electric tongue jack. I ended up heat shrinking the leads coming out and then siliconed the hole so no water could get in. I was not able to fully test the break away switch and stop the trailer with the battery but feel confident in the product.

I also bought a new plug with attached junction box. The battery and charger were straight forward to wire. The only problem I had was that my old trailer wire colors did not match the new plug colors. Once I sorted out my wires everything worked well. I think it is a good battery kit
