Product is a direct replacement for the brake away system currently installed on my trailer. This item was delayed in getting to eTrailer, but the staff were great in keeping me updated on the delivery date.

Still working well. Battery has kept a charge and system has worked as expected.



by:

Looks like a nice unit and definitely an improvement over my 1984 Teshonka unit that does not have a charger. Haven't installed it yet, still working on other brake parts but will add the review when in operation. Shipping was fast and price reasonable - thanks!

So far Ive made 2 round trips with my rebuilt trailer and the Bright Way Breakaway Kit is doing great. Ive never had the trailer become separated from my E450, but Im sure the Kit would operate as it should. I installed it inside the triangular area of the trailer tongue, next to the wiring harness junction box and am very pleased by the quality. The battery gets charged as needed through the hot wire of the Fords harness. Very nice product and highly recommended! Just dont know how to add a photo....



by:

Works as designed. Delivered with the expected excellent results from etrailer.



by:

Very nice unit to replace mine that the Trailers builders "forgot" to fold over the locking tabs on the channel that the unit slides into (after lunch friday oops) lol! and it hopped out when we ran through some most excellent pot-holes at 60 MPH on our fine interstate here in Virginia and it hopped out & hit the asphalt as it was still dangling by the wires. I found this at the first rest stop we hit and luckily i had a giant Tie rap to save the day and continue the journey. the wires were still in tact but the battery was long gone. Anyhow your replacement was exact, wires had a nice head-start splice on them and i am back in business. To sum it up i highly recommend y'all!!!

Nice upgrade from my stock 2014 breakaway kit that didn't have any of the status lights. Delivery was quick and everything worked good.



by:

Easy hookup, minimal footprint and still working.

One Year later and had no issues with the product. The battery is still holding strong. Highly recommend!!



by:

Purchased as part of all parts required to upgrade a 1996 Jayco to electric brakes. Very pleased with quality of parts and results. Battery still fully charged after winter in storage!



by:

These units do not do well in the sun, they should be covered. The push button cracked within 6 months and was completely gone shortly after. The unit works good, but in terms of longevity I think the electronics will succumb to the elements due to the button cracking and allowing rain inside the circuit board.



by:

Easy to install has performed well.



by:

The products seem to take a long time to get to me



by:

Just installed the trailer brake emergency battery and break-away switch. Straightforward and simple. Brake electrical system working properly. Simple install, but understand the battery box has to be mounted to something upright with wire clearance underneath. I made a couple of simple L brackets from aluminum stock leaving about 1/2" of clearance.

GREAT PEOPLE & GREAT SERVICE NEEDED TRAILER BATTERY, I WAS OUT OF TOWN NO BRAKES RUSHED MY ORDER TO ME.GOT RIGHT PART AND WAS TO ME IN 2 DAYS THANKS E TRAILER!



by:

Just what I need thanks etrailer...



by:

Works great, I've installed this on my larger gooseneck first and liked it so much I purchased another one for my smaller stock trailer. A lot better than standard break away batteries with aftermarket in line chargers. The installation is a breeze and finished results are very clean. Definitely will be installing on any other trailers I purchase in the future.



by:

Thankfully, to date I have not had to “test” my break-away brake system in an on-road situation. However, periodical stationary tests prove the system works as expected. One area of improvement would be in the fasteners used to secure the battery cover. They rusted within a month. 304 stainless steel fasteners would be a recommended low cost upgrade.



by:

Excellent customer service, reasonable pricing, timely shipping and delivery,, and quality parts for the past 10 years of doing business with etrailer.com. Keep up the good work.
