I spent a lot of time looking at and for an emergency trailer brake. I loved the etrailer website, it showed me good, better, best and clearly and quickly told me the costs and the difference between each. My unit arrived sooner than expected, in excellent shape, and included a battery which was a surprise! I have not installed it yet, but I am sure it will work great and do exactly what I need it to do. I have ordered from etrailer before and have never been anything but happy with my products.

Continues to work great. I have not had to use it thank goodness, but it works well each time it is tested.

I bought these brake batteries when rewiring two old horse trailers. This is the third & fourth trailer I've rewired, so I'm pretty used to it by now. Everything about this product went together easily. Routing the wires on the trailer was another story, as usual. I sold one trailer, but I've been using the other trailer infrequently for about a year now, and the brakes seem to be working quite well. I haven't had an occasion to test the breakaway battery out on the road, fortunately, but the little lights on the top indicate that it's maintaining a good charge, and the breakaway switch did lock up the brakes when I tested it in my shop. BTW, I *love* pairing these with the Bargman coiled wiring plugs. They're so much nicer to use than straight wires.

Since I was rewiring the trailer anyway, I decided to install the breakaway as an upgrade. I received the part in good shape and it appears to fill the bill. I mounted the switch in the front of the V of the hitch where there is a flat surface. I drilled a 3/4" hole to allow the pin to be inserted without being subjected to damage. The mounting surface used was a plate along side of the jack lift. By mounting it against the backside of the front plate through the hole, the switch is held in place and totally protected. I mounted the battery in the upper part of the storage compartment in the front of the trailer and used a terminal strip to connect it to the other wiring as needed. I connected the interior LED lights through a switch to this battery to provide lighting inside the trailer. Pretty cool. When the vehicle is connected to the trailer, the battery is charged. If the pin is pulled out of the breakaway switch, the power from the battery is applied to the brakes. The battery is quite small something like 4 amp hours, but that is great plenty to operate the brakes in any emergency situation for several minutes because the brakes have a small draw. The only problem I had with the battery was that it lays in the package without constraints so that it can flop around. It had yanked the white wire loose from the battery so the system did not operate until I realized that it was disconnected. So I reconnected it and put it back together, but the wire disconnected again. The wires pass through a slot in the box and are also not constrained so that they are pulled out by operating the cover door. I just taped the wires together with electricians tape so they fit more firmly in the slot provided.


Comments
The only problems I have encountered are 1 the battery continues to run down. It is difficult to keep it charged up. 2 The pin comes out too easily, and unfortunately I cannot tell it because the brakes wont hold well enough. 3Thats it! The item works fine - it is a big asset to the trailer.

Quick processing, and delivery. reasonably priced . Adding this to my enclosed 16' trailer. Plan to mount it inside to keep it safe and secure. Impressed that it came fully charged. etrailer is my initial go to source for any trailer / motorhome /ATV related purchases. Great selection of parts and tons of how - to videos . Thank you for everything.

This kit has worked flawless from day 1. Battery is always fully charged. Use trailer 2-3 times a month. Gives great peace of mind knowing that it there and always ready.

I really wanted a 9 ah setup to insure ample power but I could not find one that also had a push button test feature so I decided I would just mount two and configure them to work together. It uses two, dpdt switches to switch the units on and off line either independently or together. This gives me assurance of ample power and a backup to each other.. One thing I'm going to do is run a diode isolated circuit to the cold side of the breakaway switch to the l.e.d. Break lights so if the trailer ever did come lose, it will also apply the break lights. The two diodes will keep the tow vehicles breaklight power from back feeding into the actuator's emergency stop circuit.

I was able to find hard-to-find lug nuts for my Haulmark trailer on etrailer; no auto parts store carried tis size. My break-away battery was dead, not surprising after 18 years of service. I also was able to cancel a wiring harness on my order, as I found the missing one in my garage. All in all, etrailer is a pleasure to work with and has all the parts I need to keep my trailer in top shape.

Excellent service! Researching flat tow equipment online led us to etrailer.com. Paula was extremely helpful in selecting the correct products for our Jeep Wrangler JK.

Because I just received my product, what I am really reviewing is the process for selecting it and the customer service I received. First, my order came very quickly.

Battery Breakaway Box is of good quality & u can utilize the different cutouts for entrance/exit of wiring with common electrical wire knockout clamps , although wiring instructions on battery box need more clarification or better wiring instructions added to product .

The Break-away kit with charger and tester and a top mount display is a well made product that took maybe 4 minutes to replace and 8 more minutes to wire. The original was damaged when loading my trailer and no longer charged the battery making the breakaway system useless. I was looking for the circuit board to replace, but the entire unit was well priced and easy to replace. The only thing I would add to the kit are the needed butt splice wire connectors.

Ask the Experts about this Hopkins Trailer Breakaway Kit

  • Will The Breakaway Switch Draw Power When Disconnected From Tow Vehicle
    When you unhook the trailer from the SUV you are not going to pull the pin of the breakaway switch to activate the trailer brakes. The only time the breakaway switch is going to pull power is if the pin is pulled from the breakaway switch which activates the brakes. The other side of your breakaway switch has a cable that attaches to the vehicle's frame or hitch while towing. Most people use a clip to attach the loop at the end of the cable to the vehicle's frame or loop it through the...

  • Electric Trailer Brakes Engaging
    Thanks for the nice words and all that information! It certainly isn't normal that your trailer brakes are engaging without a brake controller though there are a couple of reasons why this can happen. My guess is a wiring issue on the trailer where the wires are making contact and 12 volt power is getting through to the brakes. So I recommend going over the wiring from your brakes and tracing it to see if there is an issue there. If need be you can replace with 10 gauge wire # 10-1-1. Or...

  • Power Draw On Tow Vehicle Battery to Charge Hopkins Engager Push-To-Test Trailer Breakaway Battery
    The Hopkins Engager Push-To-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit with Built-In Battery Charger part # 20400 has a maximum power amp draw of 2 amps to charge the breakaway battery. The power draw is so low is will not drain the tow vehicle's battery. It will also only charge when the trailer is connected to the tow vehicle and the 12V circuit is active. On some vehicle's that does require the ignition to be turned on.

    It is entirely possible that a breakaway battery that has sat for 3 years including winters could now be bad.

If your existing battery is 3-1/2 inches by 2-3/4 inches by 4 inches then you can use # HM20008. As a matter of fact, all of the breakaway batteries we have are this size, see link.

  • Can Breakaway Switch By Itself Be Used If Trailer Already Had Battery
    If you have a battery already on your trailer that's getting a charge and would be adequate to hold the brakes of your trailer in the event of a breakaway you could wire just a switch from it to your brake output circuit and you'd be fine. For that you'd only need a switch like the # FA80-00-2040 for a kit with a coiled cable or part # 2005-P for a kit with a straight cable. The battery setups like the part # 20099 would only be needed if you also needed a battery to power the system.
