Having a trailer is really helpful and handy, especially if you're going to move to a new house or bring something bulky to the old one. Of course, you can hire someone else to transport your belongings, but wouldn't it be better to simply hook up a trailer to your vehicle and do all you need in any time of the day or night? Still, even if your car is already rated and equipped to tow, you cannot just head out on the road. While being extremely useful, a trailer can also be hazardous. You can easily put yourself as well as your property at risk if you don't follow proper safety procedures. To fully protect your trailer investment, Hopkins offers their top-quality break away system at a price that won't hurt your pocket.
This break away system is designed to bring your trailer safely to a stop by activating electric brakes, in case the trailer is suddenly disconnected while on the go. This type of safety system is legally required in most states and provinces on trailers rated over 3,000 lbs. GVW (gross vehicle mass). The device features a built-in LED battery meter and charger to indicate the status of battery 'life,' so you can always be aware of its current state. When it comes to installation, it is not that difficult as it may seem. All you have to do is to determine if your trailer brakes operate and verify that your auxiliary power is connected. Next, simply find a secure location on your trailer to mount this great Hopkins break away system.26.71 41.18
