I mistakenly ordered this, had to exchange for the classic digital version. easy exchange, great customer service from etrailer, as always.



by:

Second one I have purchased. Easy to install. Great customer service



by:

Simple to install. Haven't had to use it for it's intended purpose because my TOAD hasn't broken loose from my MH (at least not yet). Peace of mind and required by law is why I purchased.



by:

the parts i needed to change to new tow vehicle



by:

This is a great kit for the breakaway switch. The kit has everything you need to add the breakaway switch to a second tow vehicle or replace an old one.



by:

Working well



by:

The break away wire kit was a quality product. The only problem was that it didn't come with the banana plug ends to plug it into the break buddy. Now that there is no such thing as Radio Shack, finding banana plugs took some time and with shipping were expensive. The kit should include a pair.

Love the Roadmaster products from Etrailer. They make flat towing our Jeep Cherokee a breeze.

Prompt delivery- thank you

Hi, The break away items
arrived today and will be installed on the 2019 Chev
on January 16th.
I attended our Holiday Rambler Chapter 309 meeting this afternoon.
I made it a point to inform the members about your firm and how pleased we are
with your service.
Can you send us your catalog and I will pass it around at next months meeting.

Have not yet installed these replacement parts, however, I do have these items on another vehicle, and they work great. I’ve used etrailer for all of my towing equipment purchases, and couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you Allison K for your assistance with my orders!



by:

They had the parts I needed at an affordable price. Carol was fantastic when I call to check the status of my order and offered to follow-up on the order if it wasn't going to be filled timely. While she didn't have to follow-up, her attention to customer needs and focus on my satisfaction was refreshing to say the least. Great job Carol!

Very good installation it does an awesome job

The part I ordered arrived quickly. Very pleased to be able to find parts that would otherwise take a lot of time and driving to locate. Great source of auto towing equipment.

  • Can Roadmaster Break Away Switch be Used With Hopkins Brake Buddy Supplemental Braking System
    The break away switch used on the Roadmaster Even Brake and the Hopkins Brake Buddy are both open circuit-style switches, they're normally open until the pin gets pulled at which time the circuit closes and the unit actuates the vehicle brakes. What you propose to do should work just fine but I'd recommend testing the switch a couple of times afterward to make sure everything still works the way it should. FYI, Brake Buddy does offer a replacement switch as part # HM39340. I've linked...

  • Blue Ox Base Plate Kit for Flat Towing 2011 Chevy Tahoe
    Since you have a Blue Ox tow bar already the base plate kit you'd want is the Blue Ox part # BX1676 which fits your 2011 Chevy Tahoe. Most likely you are missing the breakaway kit of your Break Buddy so for that you'd want the part # HM39340.

This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This...

  • Recommended Portable Braking System For a 2024 Jeep Wrangler Being Flat Towed
    I recommend using the Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System # HM39524 on your 2024 Jeep Wrangler. I prefer this unit as it provides proportional braking and folds up into an easy to store package. If you plan on using this with multiple vehicles you will need a Breakaway # HM39340, Charge Line # BB54FR and Dash Mount # HM39342. This will allow you to easily move the braking system from vehicle to vehicle.
