Review of Pro Series Trailer Breakaway Kit PS50-85-320


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Pro Series Push to Test Breakaway Kit with a Premium Integrated Charger. Now, Breakaway systems are designed to bring a trailer safely to a stop by activating its electric brakes should it be disconnected while towing, which would bring the trailer to an eventual stop. Now please keep in mind that Breakaway Kits are required in many states and provinces so you want to state with your state's regulations, but this is going to be a great option for you. The kit, here, the lid is going to feature a Push to Test feature. It's going to have an LED bar right here that's going to indicate fully charged, charging, or recharge. So it's got the big, green button that you can push, and then a light's going to come on. Right now it's saying fully charged. Another neat feature of this unit is that it has a built in, multi-stage battery charger that's going to offer a fast charge to quickly bring the voltage up.

It will charge the battery automatically when your trailer is plugged into the tow vehicle. The case is a very nice, strong construction. It's going to do a good job of protecting the battery and the charger and will withstand exposure to normal elements. It's going to use multiple mounting options. The instructions will indicate exactly what those are and how to mount for each one. You've got the mounting tabs all the way around it so you can kind of choose a couple different ways to mount it: whatever works best for your particular application. Right here, this is going to allow you to gain access to the LED, or to the battery.

It does come with two zip ties installed right here. I went ahead and cut those off and removed them because I want to be able to show you that it does include the 12-vault LED acid battery. It's already pre-wired in and it's ready to go. The other reason why I remove those is because I also wanted to show you that you could leave one zip tie on there and then you could use the other hole to install a padlock so you could actually lock the lid to the box. So it is lockable. All that is sold separately.

The padlocks are sold separately; your mounting hardware's going to be sold separately. It just comes with everything that you see right here on the table. It's going to come with your Breakaway switch. It's got the Breakaway cable that's going to measure 48 inches long. It's already connected to the actual switch and then the other end gets connected to the vehicle that's doing the towing.

Then on this side you're going to have your 2 black wires. One's going to get connected to the electric brakes on the trailer and then the other one's going to get connected to the blue wire coming out of the battery box here. The white wire from the box is going to be your ground wire. The black wire from the box is going to be your power wire, so that's going to supply power. The unit does meet the Department of Transportation's specifications and, again, it does come with your detailed installation instructions to walk you through the entire process step-by-step when it comes to installing and operating. Now, this system's designed for 1 to 3 axle trailers with electric brakes. Battery capacity's going to be 5 AMP hours and, again, Breakaway switch length is 48 inches long. We're going take some measurements here of the actual box. Outside edge to outside edge, including the mounting tabs, we're looking at about 6 and 5/8ths of an inch going this direction. Going this direction, outside edge to outside edge, it's going to give us a measurement of about 5 inches. Then, this direction we're looking at about 4 and 1/4. That's going to do it for today's look at the Pro Series Push to Test Breakaway Kit with the Premium Integrated Charger.
