I used this unit to pair with the Dexter DX Series Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator, as it directly called for a 9mAh backup. This unit works as advertised, and the switch and wiring were easily identified and match the directions that come with the Dexter unit. The only reason I give this unit 4 stars instead of 5 is that it doesn't come with a battery charge indicator, which nearly every other 5mAh unit does. It would be really nice to be able to check the charge of the battery, without having to activate the emergency pull. Just a personal preference, but seems like a missing feature since all the 5mAh options have it.

The five stars are for etrailer service and shipping. My dexter k71-651 e/h controller and the dexter breakaway 34-285 were well packaged and great shipping lables. A phone call after my online order to confirm mailing address and follow-up e-mail my parcel was on its way. UPS tracking ,my SCC parcel pick-up in port huron michigan and my son crossing the borderI had my parts within 48hrs (duty paid). I would like to follow-up with photos of my installation. The dexter E/H controller and breakaway switch is replacing an vacumm / hydraulic disc brakes on in my yard NEW 1977 31ft airstream trailer, This trailer is replacing my 78 airstream that was gutted by fire with a auto parts store solar panel battery maintaining system. Thats another story. THANKS ALL

I have never been so happy with the Dexter Product that I have installed. I have told everyone. Thank you so much. Your concern for me as a customer is second to none. Thank you at Dexter for the great design and ease of installing. I own a 4 axel boat trailer with Dexter Elec over Hyd Disc on all 4 wheels. Thank you and hope we all have a safe summer.
