    The law requires a breakaway system if your trailer has electric brakes. Simply, this means that if your trailer coupler separates from the ball, a lanyard attached to the tow vehicle will pull a pin out of a switch. This connects a small battery directly to the trailer brakes. This way, your errant trailer won't continue down the road until it smashes into something, but simply brake smoothly to a halt.

    This breakaway system is a vital safety system and should receive regular maintenance, including charging the small battery. Experts recommend replacing the entire breakaway system, battery, switch and wiring regularly every 3-5 years. The simplest place to mount the battery box is on the tongue of the trailer, but where isn't as important as long as it works. You'll need to make electrical connections to the brake circuit, a chassis ground and to the trailer 12V feed for a charger, if you install one.

    Intelligent trailer braking is the key to the success of the Tekonsha family of braking products. Established in 1964, Tekonsha technology can be found in some of North America's leading vehicle manufacturers… a testimony to it's superior performance history when it comes to stopping trailers. Smooth, predictable stopping at all speeds has made Tekonsha’s Prodigy®, Primus® and Voyager® trailer brake controls "best of class" and the most popular available today. As the industry leader in electric trailer brake controls and breakaway systems remember… "No matter what you are towing, Tekonsha can help you stop it".

    Breakaway Switch
    This unit was just like one it came with when we bought it new in 2001. Easy to hook up and works fine, didnt have to drive all over town to get one.
