Video Transcript for Curt Trailer Breakaway Kit - Kit Only - C52026 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt Soft Trac II Trailer Breakaway Kit. Breakaway systems activate your trailer's electric brakes if the trailer disconnects with the tow vehicle. That's going to help prevent a full runaway situation. This is a top-loading case. It provides easy access from above. It's going to feature a nice weather-resistant construction that protects the battery from moisture and debris. It's also going to feature a built-in mounting bracket that offers easy installation, no drilling required.

The unit simply clamps onto your trailer frame or around the tubing of your jack. It does come with the hardware to get that installed. You could also use that to weld it to your trailer frame if you choose to do so. The lid on the box has this tab right here, so it is lockable with a padlock. Padlock is sold separately. It's going to include this, your battery.

It's also going to come with your breakaway switch. This installs on your trailer's frame. You will need to drill that to the trailer's frame. Just a self-tapping screw. This side has a two-wire design. Those are going to be blue wires.

One blue wire goes to the breakaway battery. The other blue wire gets connected to the electric brake wire on your setup. The cable on this side is a nice coated cable. You don't have worry about that scratching or damaging anything. That connects to the towing vehicle.

Again, if the event happens where the trailer disconnects from the vehicle, this cable would get pulled, the pin would get pulled out of the switch and send a signal through and then it would activate the trailer's brakes bringing your trailer to a stop. This is Department of Transportation complaint. It's going to have the 12-volt sealed lead-acid battery that's included. White wire on there, that's going to be your ground wire. I'll show you how it fits in the box. Really simple design. It just lays right in there. It's even got some extra room on this side so you can get your wiring in there. It's got a groove here so you can run your wiring out of the box and still fully close the lid. This system's designed for one- to three-axle trailers with electric brakes. Taking a few measurements of the case starting with the length just right there below the lid, so the actual case measures 5" long. It's going to measure about 3-7/8" to 4" wide. The height's going to be about 3-1/4" tall. That battery capacity is 5 amp-hours. The battery itself fits right in that box. That battery measures 3-1/2" long by 2-3/4" wide by 4" tall. Your clamp right here, that's going to give us an opening space of right at 3". Then the diameter of this hole, so if you want it for around the tubing of your jack, that's going to be about 2-1/2" to 2-9/16" in diameter. It does come with the bolt and the nut. One on this side; one this side. That way you just thread that down. Ensures a nice, tight, secure clamp. Now please note that a breakaway system is required by law in my states for trailers that are equipped with electric brakes and have a gross towing weight of at 3,000 pounds. That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt Soft Trac II Trailer Breakaway Kit.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Breakaway Kit

Do you have a question about this Trailer Breakaway Kit?


  • 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...

  • 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 # ET7WK 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,...

  • 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...

  • 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.
