Video Transcript for Tekonsha Trailer Breakaway Kit - Kit Only - 1026 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number one zero two six. This is the Tekonsha Trailer Breakaway Kit with a clamp-on design. The electronic breakaway kit is going to feature a rechargeable sealed maintenance-free battery for trouble-free towing. This breakaway kit is designed to bring trailers safely to a stop by activating the breaks should the trailer become disconnected while you're driving down the road. It's going to come with the battery case, has the mounting bracket attached to the back of it. It's going to come with a twelve-volt sealed rechargeable four amp battery. It's going to come with the breakaway switch.

It's going to have the wires on this side. One wire gets ran to the twelve volt battery that it comes with in the kit. The other one's going to get ran to the trailer breaks, and then it's going to have the breakaway cable. One end stays attached to the switch, the other end gets attached to the vehicle that's towing the trailer. It's also going to come with a set of detailed instructions.

Those are going to walk you through the installation process step by step, and it's got a nice wiring diagram in there so it makes it fairly simple to get everything connected according to the instructions. Now this is for use with all single, tandem, and tri axle breakaway applications. It's going to offer a quick and easy installation. It's going to be weather and corrosion resistant. And it meets or exceeds the Department of Transportation's specifications for trailer breakaway and holding requirements. Now most states require a breakaway switch with a separate power supply when towing a trailer.

This one right here, again, here on the back of the battery box, we have have the clamp-on box design. It's got the hardware right there. You can mount this to the trailer jack or to your trailer frame. Basically once your box is mounted, one end of the box is going to lift up, this end right here, and your battery would drop right into position, just right inside here. It's a nice, secure fit.

It's got this little slit here on the backside where your wires will come out. I do need to mention that the easy connect right here, these are included. They just go over the terminals here on your battery that's supplied, but the wiring to charge the battery is sold separately, and you can find that on our website with part number one zero two four. So once you have your battery in here, your wires run out the side, now you can close the lid of the battery case. Again, this would be mounted onto your trailer. Once you have this attached, this is also going to attach to your trailer. One wire is going to run to your trailer brakes. The other wire's going to run to the power supply, which is the battery that comes with the kit. This part of the cable is going to attach to your vehicle, so what happens is, if you get into a situation where your safety chains don't work, let's say the trailer breaks away from the vehicle that's towing it. Since this would be connected to the trailer, and just the end of the cable would be connected to the vehicle, it's going to pull the plug out of the breakaway switch, which is going to activate your trailer brakes, which would bring your trailer to a nice, safe stop, which ultimately is going to prevent a trailer runaway situation. So these systems are great to have in place. Again, they are required in most states, so you just need to check your requirements. And this would be a good fit for you. It would be a good application to have. And it's all about safety. That's going to do it for our review of part number one zero two six. This is the Tekonsha Trailer Breakaway Kit. .

Breakaway system is designed to bring your trailer safely to a stop by activating its electric brakes should it become disconnected while being towed. Rechargeable battery is included.


I installed this breakaway battery kit, along with a Hydrastar Electric-over-Hydraulic controller, and a new trailer tongue and wiring pigtail with junction box. This guy was a snap to install, but because it's me, I also installed a couple of self-tapping screws to anchor the mount. I do wish there was a complete wiring schematic for the whole system: controller, battery system, trailer wiring, and new 7 prong wiring pigtail with a junction box, or at least one that shows the pigtail, controller, and battery system. All in all, a great product, and the service, as always, was excellent.


Product works great, but doesn't include the inline charger to prevent over charging when connected to the tow vehicle. I'm not sure that it is necessary, but I found one at NAPA for $6. It was my fault for not looking carefully enough at the description.


super fast shipping. exactly what was needed to get my flatbed trailer back on the road. Prices were great and customer support is fantastic. thanks for all the help and great products.


this product is just like the old one, but, 20 years newer. goes right on, with a shorter mounting bolt. the long one just looks bad. interesting that it was made in the usa. thank you for your fast service.


Just as advertised, easy installation, and super fast shipping!

  • Should Rusty Tire Cables be Replaced
    If the cables are pretty rusty it's probably time for a new set. Snow cables like the Glacier part # PW1026 aren't designed to last forever and if yours have significant rust it's time to replace them before they fail on your vehicle and cause damage.

  • Brakes No Longer Work After Breakaway Pin Pulled
    If I am understanding you correctly, the breakaway pin on your breakaway system was pulled which then activated the brakes on your gooseneck trailer and now the brakes won't work. If that is the case then you may have fried your brake controller as some of the older controllers do not have circuit protection built-in to protect against this. For future reference, if you're ever going to test your breakaway system you will need to do so with the trailer connector detached from the tow vehicle....

  • Resetting Breakaway Switch on Trailer to Allow Brakes to Release
    Pushing the pin back into the breakaway switch should allow the brakes of the trailer to release. You may have to back the trailer up slightly to get the brakes to release. If you have tried that and are still having problems you may need to replace the switch with something like the part # 3802348.

  • Recommended Tire Cables for 185/65-15 Tires
    The correct set of tire cables for the 185/65-15 tires that you have now is the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains part # PW1026. The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains part # PW1034 that you are referencing would not even fit on your tires as they are much too big. Trying to attach these cables to your tires would be an immediate risk to both you and others on the road. Unfortunately, the cables do not have the adjustability that chains do so it is not like you can take links out either.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2018 Hyundai Accent
    We do have a large selection of tire chains available for your 2018 Hyundai Accent. In order to choose the correct size chains or cables, you will first need to locate the tire size on your vehicle. This will be located on the sidewall of the tire itself. I also recommend checking the owner's manual for your Hyundai Accent, as there will be specific guidelines and restrictions you will need to follow with regards to the use of tire chains. The two common tire sizes for your Hyundai Accent...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 20 inch Rims
    The first thing you need to do is consult the owners manual of your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 to determine if there are restrictions on snow chain usage with your vehicle. For a chain confirmed to fit your P275/55R20 I would recommend the Titan Chain part # TC2533. These install easily and will last you a while.

  • Fitting and Adapter for Waste Pump Sewer Pipe
    The Valterra Rotating Adapter for Rigid RV Sewer Pipe - 3" Hub to 3" Bayonet # T1028 is designed to fit onto a 3" waste valve with the bayonet fitting and the 3" hub will slide onto the sewer pipe so you can have your sewer pipe go between this adapter and the pump. There are other adapters, but they are all going to depend on the fittings you have. For example, the Clearview Adapter for RV Sewer Hose # T1026-1 is a clear and has a 45 degree angle, but uses 3" bayonet and lug fittings,...

  • Difference Between Valterra T1023 and T1026-1 RV Sewer Adapter Fittings
    The # T1023 and # T1026-1 both have bayonet fittings on one end and lug fittings on the other. The only difference is that the # T1023 is a 90° fitting and the # T1026-1 is a 45°.

  • Are the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains Part # PW1026 Sold in Pairs
    All of our tire chains and cables such as the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains part # PW1026 are sold in pairs (2 chains). As long as your 2007 Toyota Yaris has 185/60-15 tires then these cables will work well for you. If you instead have the 175/65-14 tires then you will want to use part # PW1018. The Glacier Rubber Adjusters part # PW100 are also recommended for either set. I have attached a review video of these cables for you as well.

  • Correcting Dead Battery in Trailer Breakaway System
    Chances are that your breakaway battery fully discharged during the overnight period when it was accidentally engaged. Breakaway batteries are rated to deliver 15-minutes of power in an emergency stop. You can try re-charging it with a battery charger like # CTEK56353 from CTEK. I own one of their chargers and it does a good job on my mower and motorcycle batteries. If a charge does not correct the problem then you can use Replacement Sealed Lead Acid Battery # TK2023 or Replacement Breakaway...

  • Rubber Adjuster for the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains on a 2004 Toyota Prius
    If you are wanting to use the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW1026 with the 185/65R15 tires on your 2004 Toyota Prius then the adjusters that were mentioned and used in the video for the 2007 Prius are the Glacier Rubber Adjusters # PW100. For a multi-arm option we also have the part # PW105 that is compatible with these chains.

  • Parts Needed to Add Headlight, Battery and Wiring to Adult Trike
    It is certainly possible to add a 12V battery, wiring and lights to your adult trike to make it easier to see. This will probably be easiest if the bike has a basket or other cargo carrying part to store the battery. That battery needs to be rated for enough amp-hours to power the specific light for the period of time you plan to use it. The batteries we offer are trailer breakaway batteries like # HM20008. We also have kits with a battery box too, like # 1026. I suggest high-efficiency...
