Does Hydrastar HS481-8067 Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator Include Charger for Break Away System


Hey guys! Im towing a 2005 Crownline 240EX on a Shorlandr tandem trailer with surge disc brakes with my 2004 Avalanche 2500. I have the Prodigy P2 controller installed, and it worked nicely with the Titan BrakeRite I kit on a previously converted trailer. This time Im looking at the Hydrastar HS481-8067 for its streamline profile and single battery setup. 2 questions: 1 Does the included breakaway kit of the HS481 have a self charger? 2 Also can I use this HS481 kit WITHOUT using the provided controller adapter, since the P2 will not need it? Thanks!


Helpful Expert Reply:

According to Hydrastar, their # HS481-8067 vented Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator system does indeed include a charger for the battery used by the break away system. The charger would connect to the 12-volt trailer connector feed from the tow vehicle.

Since your # 90885 Tekonsha Prodigy P2 brake controller is EOH actuator compatible, you won't need to use the adapter module that's included with the kit.

I've linked to the installation instructions as well as to a product description video that you might find helpful.
